I have such a desire to bling something the fuck out with addressable LED pixels & strip and design cool animations to go all over it. I even have all the parts.
I just don’t know *what* needs the bling treatment.


I mean I *want* to make a giant kinetic sculpture of moving & spinning rods, cams & curves, finished in ultra-low reflectivity black paint but studded in RGB LEDs

You would view it in a nearly-dark space. And the lights on different moving parts would blink at different frequencies and your eye would be trying to work out the structure & pattern of movement, starting from very little information, to eventually enough to see it

Or even better, it’s just lights turning on gradually. At first it appears to be a single circle being inscribed by one light. But then another light comes on showing that is in fact two degrees of freedom, synchronising to create a circle at the first point. Then another light — it’s 3 degrees. Etc.
