Flux Star

August 1st, 2009

On the roof of Flux Factory, I installed a temporary light installation, called ‘Flux Star’. It is a solar powered reference to graffiti, where painting a star out of 4 or 8 simple lines was established to be put on walls trough out the city.

Most parts come from a solar powered string light, which I bought and took apart to harvest LEDs and the main unit featuring a solar panel, a battery and the electronic parts to drive the LEDs. The circuit is quite similar to those used in the ducks, but more powerful.

More information to come, if the installation gets re-done into a permanent artwork.
