Hi, so I picked up a bunch of these fairy lights and intend on arranging them into a matrix on a vinyl sheet to hang in my 2m x 1m window on holidays etc.
They spacing is 5cm apart on the wire but obviously I can go smaller than this by having some slack. I was initially thinking 5cm would be a good distance, but am curious if anyone else has done a matrix project like this and can lend their thoughts… I’d like to be able to do effects of course like so many patterns already available here, but also it would be nice to have the door open for pixel art / sprites / text, or other stuff that needs the density to be of a certain degree for our eyes to “see” the image. I didn’t have a lot of success googling this - maybe I’m using the wrong terminology.
My windows are 35-50ft from the viewer depending, and I am planning two 1m x 1m squares to either form a large 2m x 1m display, or moved apart to create two separate ones.
