studio kenji tribeca film led lights

MAKE community member Justin Weiner of New York design firm Studio Kenji shared a neat video he made documenting the simple but stunning LED light display that BWArchitects made for the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. Delicate pink and blue flowers were handmade using 1,600 LEDs wrapped in translucent paper shades and mounted on thin steel rods of varying lengths anchored in painted wood bases. The effect was lovely as they were all lit and swaying in the evening breeze on the steps of the courthouse in NYC. Great idea to implement on a smaller scale for an outdoor event or gathering.

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
