Drew Middlebrooks from ThreeLife Church in LaGrange, GA brings us these very cool glowing LED squares. (Originally posted March 2014)
The main elements of the design are the nine 4’x4′ led squares. They were constructed out of 1/2″ PVC sprayed black with standard RGB LED flex strips attached to the front. They were run off five DMX decoders. The ideal situation would call for one per square, but they had to double up some of them.
Their stage is not very deep, so they always ran into the issue of creating a sense of depth on stage. This design really did the trick. The brightness of the LED squares fools your eye into thinking the space behind the square is darker and deeper than it is.
The design cost about $65 per square.
