No kidding Andrew, spent a little while checking out your site! Nice works.

Out of curiosity, in the In transit piece (
http://www.aomalley.org/lighting/in_transit.html) how did you get the
colours to come through the acrylic so cleanly? is it entirely edge lit
with coloured LEDs below clear acrylic panels or are the
acrylic panels themselves coloured.
