These framed electronic light panels create hypnotic geometric patterns in response to music or other ambient sounds. The lights are arranged in a tiled geometric pattern with a 6" square repeat.  When multiple tiles are joined together, one section serves as the lead LED controller, and the others behave as clones.

The lenticular vinyl layer helps to diffuse the light, and simulates a honeycomb texture.

The Sit 'n Stare panels were intended for use as a tabletop display, wall hanging, or stand-alone room partition. At several events, they were also used for stage lighting and DJ booth enhancement.
