Installation for e-luminate festival

Idea for what is essentially a clock composed of addressable RGB leds. Based round a 9 segment display (7 segments seemed a bit boring). The project wouldn’t have been possible without the very generous help of Fusion Optix who provided custom cut diffusion channel .

The led channels will be mounted on 12mm plywood. (Scrap packaging from work!)

The Leds used are WS2812B strips from Ray Wu

Took about a week to arrived from Shenzhen via DHL. Bought a few spare metres just in case there are any dodgy LEDs. Haven’t found any so far!

Template for cutting / wiring purposes.
