FireFly LED Video

October 31, 2008

This sculpture is made up of 210 LEDs, each with its own switch. The switches are made of bent wires that hang through holes in the sculpture’s metal structure. The LEDs are all connected to power, and the hanging wires become grounded when they touch the sides of the structure. As the wind blows over the sculpture, the switches turn on at different times, based on the strength of the wind.
