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.

Center Earth

Coding update
So I suppose I can now tell you all a bit more about this project that I'm getting the Technowall (unofficial name, but it seems to be sticking).
The project is called Center Earth, and it's a pilot for a science fiction-y type show, akin to 70's shows like Doctor Who. Right now, it's slated to be used for at least one set (Can't remember the exact name of it, but it's a department in the main government/oversight building), and potentially several others.
I've been busy coding up what the director wants, and am mostly done at this point. I still need to do a bit of wiring (wiring up a pushbutton on a very long cable so he can control a trigger mechanism directly), but that's a rather minor thing. The shooting for that scene is set for a week from this coming Tuesday (so the 15th-ish). I will hopefully try to block off some time to go and supervise things, in case the code doesn't work right or certain elements of the operation need to be tweaked (changing colors, speed, etc).

Anyway, the website is here: www.center-earth.com. There's not a whole lot on there yet, but the theme music is pretty sweet, and the open call list might give you a better idea of the focus of the show.
