We where working in the Appropriate Technology Department workshop on a rustic handcrafted LED lamp. Clemens, a very active volunteer, brought his camera to take some pictures.
Clemens working on an LED handcrafted lamp.
We where using strips of 1 watt 12 volts LED, using a wireless drill battery to feed them.
The light they produce is intense, brilliant, powerful. We saw another possibility of using this light source….
LED saber for light painting
We set an authentic LED saber, or a light paintbrush if you are not a Star Wars fan.
We started to shoot pictures inside the workshop with a long time of exposure while painting in the air with the light brush.
The results where amazing.
Clemens light painted
So we decide prepare and offer an activity in the evening for sharing the fun with our mates. We started doing inside light painting, in the main house, under the arc of the study area. The ability and creativity of each trying to paint was increasing, obtaining very nice pictures. Our most exotic volunteers wrote in arabic, chines and, even, tamil alphabets.
