LED Display for Art purpose

An ongoing and constantly changing project. I aim to use an led grid system to display light in an artistic matter.

For this project I aim to create an interesting led display as an installation piece using adressable leds. My reasoning is to display how a very low resolution display can be used to display beautiful visuals and or data.

    Snags I have encountered during the project and how I dealt with them

    voltage drop once grid reached a certain point, - I remedied this by swapping out multiple adapters with a single 10A 5v Supply.

    Bad LEDS - LOTS LOTS LOTS of testing with a multi meter!

    Flexibility and stability between modules- by designing the modules around the LEDs themselves, the LEDs remained stable in a small circular cradle that was build in the 3d print. so the wires had slack but the flexible tubing that kept the grid together remained taut.
