They liked the idea and wanted it to be portable for touring. I tossed around some ideas but a series of spinning lights seemed impractical. I had some RGB LED strips laying around and after a few night experiments that are too embarrassing to post, I built a giant ring to test. The 50′ circumference ring breaks down into 10x 5′ segments with quick connectors. The whole kit can fit into the trunk of a car and can run off a Raspberry Pi and pixel controller.
The first day I got it up and running, I was almost trampled over by the office dog.
Our original launch date was sometime in the spring, but a show came up at the Wood Street galleries, and they asked if I could slap it together in time. It’s still a work in progress, but one that is fun to play with. Similar to the theater, it looks even better in person and hard to capture on camera. Take a peek; we hope to do more with it soon!
