Aurora the Willow by Charlie Gadeken

A 30-foot high steel sculpture with 3000 watts of computer-controlled LEDS, by Charlie Gadeken. Each one of 189 branches can be individually color controlled, for a total of 567 DMX channels. We used 20 Celestial Audio DMX32 boards and a custom two-universe DMX interface board. Custom DMX controller software was written in pure Python using the wxPython and Pyserial libraries.
