The Space Theatre light art installation was originally a successful art grant recipient project for the Maitreya festival to be held in March 2016, however this festival did not go ahead. Luckily the Space Theatre was able to be displayed at the Plan B festival in October 2016.
The Space Theatre is a 3D lightwork consisting of over 2000 LEDs. It uses over 27 metres of programmable APA-102C LEDs driven by a Raspberry Pi A+, and powered by two 200W power supplies. It has 488 solder joins which were done by hand. The animation was created using a custom software developed and fine-tuned over the last 12 months by Elec-tron. This specialised software allows animation blocks to be run concurrently at fast speeds.Read More
