So ... This work has become my "Frankensteins Monster". After holding in such a way that it was backlit by a lamp I had an idea,then I began to do a little research discovering that LEDs come in strips "like rolls of illuminated tape". Then it came to me that I know engineers....many many engineers of all varieties. Someone surely will know how to program a small microcontroller that will illuminate a grid of LED's in preser patterns as to simulate various lighting effects "shimmer,wave,ambient glow". Backlit art is nothing new..but.....I have an hunch that my take on this will be something very....very different from what is out there. So...we will see if I can make this work.
