I’ve been researching fun ways to use scrolling LED signs and came across this cool piece by Los Angeles-based visual artist Daniel DeSure. This unconventional LED scroller was on display as part of a gallery show called “Wouldn’t it be Nice?” that featured DeSure’s work in 2008. Wouldn’t it be nice to hang this over my couch? I think so. [via ffffound]

    I love the idea!  The flicker is a tad annoying.  Is is there on purpose or could we do some more engineering on it?

    1. I presume the flicker is just a shutter sync issue with the camera and isn’t seen with the human eye in person.
