Introduction: LED Based Artwork

This is artwork that I made with my mother as a demonstration of the versatility of LED art. I wrote a document outlining the theory underlying light-based art, how to find good pigments for use with LED lights, as well as an in depth explanation of the design considerations in making extremely high power LED light fixtures.

These LED light fixtures have UV LEDs, as well as true cyan (with the easy possibility of adding true amber or red-orange as well).

Hi GorillazMiko,

I finally got around to setting up a company to sell lighting of this nature. You can check out my new instructable on how to build them, or purchase whole fixtures at http://saikoled.com

The new ones only have RG+rB, but they still look quite good for most applications. I'd be happy to put them on a 12" instead of 6" flex arm to make it so that they can easily point back towards the wall they are mounted on if you send an email to our support email address.

I have been looking for exactly this for my walls and want to create some lighted artwork; can't find anything as close as this on the site. I'm a total non-techy without any tools ( just a lot of ideas) Have you or will you be writing an easy instructable ? Thanks so much.

I must say I love these combinations when I pay my first glance! I think maybe you can use a board to save controll signals ,throwing off the lines,and make the combination more complete.and more unattached and easy-use!

I love the way u have combined Light with Actual art. it works very well. Though i would be tempted to try and create less vibrant colours.
