I made this Living Art LED lamp from plywood and an Arduino-controlled LED matrix. The Arduino Nano is programmed to creates colorful moving patterns, aka, living art. However, it is also practical for use as a desk lamp, table lamp, or bedside lamp, since an LED push button allows you to switch from the living-art mode to normal white-light modes, and a red-nightlight mode.

I made three versions of this lamp two out of bamboo plywood, and one out of walnut plywood. You could use any type of plywood you like to build the lamp.
The electronics were designed to be very simple. It can be built with NO SOLDERING.”
