Southstar makes the Vegas strip look tame

Craft & Design Technology

The “Southstar” by Josh Goldberg and Glen Duncan is a 9 foot tall LED sculpture shaped like an asterisk with 5, 6 inch panels of 36 LEDs on each spoke. The panels alternate between orange and blue colors and are controlled by a VU meter circuit, gating power to the LED panels depending on the strength of an audio signal sent to the circuit. Check out the video for the full explanation of this project.
