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.
