Jurek and the Amazing Techno, Colored DreamWall

Jurek and the Amazing Techno, Colored DreamWall

The title is mostly a placeholder, as I haven't really figured out a name for it yet. This project is a wall hanging that consists of semi-large triangular pixels using discrete RGB LED's and PWM to control intensity levels of each LED, resulting in a 4096-color display.

Post-opening Update

The art show opening went really well. There were a ton of people there, and from what friends have told me, many, many people was awed by the wall. The visible damage along the top of the wall was out of eyesight (being ~9' high), so no problems there.

I will be talking with the landlord of the Q'arma Building tonight about possibly renting a small studio space. He has a few smaller (320 and 290 sq. ft.) studios that are relatively affordable, so I am going to be exploring this option for working on the wall. My current apartment isn't suitable at all for the work I need to do (cutting wood, etc), so this will hopefully work. The studios are in the basement and don't look pretty, but just need a work area, nothing more.

As you may have noticed, things have slowed down a bit. Relaxing at the end of a day is a welcome luxury after the last 2 months.

I have briefly started looking into the USB interface, and boy is that going to suck. I've found a book or two addressing the issues of USB interfaces to project devices (exactly what I have), so I will probably pick one or more of them up. It's a very complex communication method, especially since I have to write both sides. We'll see how that goes :|

Tonight was fun. :) I think the show, the move, the new space... the everything... nothing but positive. you know?

I really hope the windowy space works out at the Q'arma building... It would be awesome to see you more often and the building offers just a great environment...

The wall = big success. Steve = awesomeness.

you know... merchandising idea... I bet if you somehow figured out a way to make "mini" triangles.. not walls - just flashing trianges... people would buy them up like... um... something cooler than hotcakes. Sort of like when Dan (from Goldenflow) made that really cool glass installation for the Walker, then sold chunks of glass like the ones he used...

you know, just a thought- because everybody wants a wall of their own now...
