Using 40 servos and 80 RGB LEDs, an attempt to create a animated color field painting by letting the light itself mix together on a canvas. The 2 LEDs are placed at the tips of 40 arms that are arranged in a circle and controlled by 40 servos. One LED faces towards the center of the circle and the other faces away from the center. Subtle differences in servo timing and LED values create a look similar to sea anemones. The color patterns resemble wasting sunsets and sunrises melding and disappearing.
