Firefly 870 LED

is a L.E.D. light prototype, which pairs 870 wind switches with 870 super-bright white LEDs to form an 8'x8' grid. Jason Krugman connected the 870 LEDs to wind switches he constructed by hand.

Looking at this piece in motionless-form resembles a close-up view of sequins as the base of each wind switch is a clear, round disc. As the wind blows over the piece, the wind switches trigger each LED individually, creating a stunning sparking effect in response to wind achieved in this video by fanning the air across the curtains.
