Aether and Hemera [1] employed arrays of LED [2]s to build three giant kinetic POV (Persistence of Vision [3]) lighting installations. These bright and lively wheels project ‘illusions’ of texts and patterns to the audience, harnessing the stroboscopic effect and the phenomenon where the human eye retains an image for a brief moment after it was actually seen. Attached to motor-powered blades, each LED is programmed to continually change color and intensity to form intricate patterns.
