Clouds etched onto plexiglass panels set in wood, lit with LED light strips.

Driven by Arduino Circuit Boards, the lights toggled on and off to simulate lightning in response to a thunderstorm playing over loudspeakers (see video below). As with a natural thunderstorm, the timing of the lightning flashes was programmed to vary in relation to the thunderclaps as the storm moved off into the distance.
