Oakland-based sculptor, Michael Christian, has a long history of collaboration with LumiGeek co-founder, Joe Martin.

The towering kinetic sculptures, Candelaphytes, stand over 30′ tall with 32 individually addressed sections of color-changing LED strip. Video-based patterns are played from an SD card through a custom system designed by Martin.

This project was some of the inspiration for LumiGeek’s 4xRGB Strip shield, with hopes that providing access to this technology would inspire future artists to experiment with dynamic lighting.
