Dragon Scales


Elysian Valley Arts Collective
Illuminate The Night, Los Angeles, Frogtown, 2023

Dragon Scales is an expandable system of geometrically-surfaced low-resolution LED panels. Cardstock shells are shingled and embedded with LEDs, hiding the LED bulbs from direct view while also diffusing their glowing light.

This system of light-diffusing shells combined with pixel-mapped LEDs results in a display system that acts as a 'blurring machine' that physically and digitally applies visual effects to inputed animations, videos, and images.

The panels magnetically snap together to form an expandable low-res display platform. Configuration of the panels is modular and flexible, as the panels can join up to make display surface as large or small as desired.
