Clive Dabbled in the Performing Arts

Tired of competing with his own artwork, Glasgow native and stage actor Clive Mitchell threw out the microcontrollers and discrete oscillators he once used to produce highly animated art pieces. Designed to be displayed in a frame, his latest creation consists of a passive grid of low-intensity diffused LEDs that creates a form that's pleasing to look at without getting in your face. He wires the LEDs in series of circuits of four with a 330 ohms resistor for each circuit, powered by a cheap, unregulated power supply and suitable for framing.
