This is a sculpture by the Flaming Lotus Girls, and is currently set up for a 1 public year install in San Francisco. It is a large metal representation of a pair of neurons, with color changing LEDs on the tips and fire running down the axon that arches between the cells. All of the LEDs, fire effects, and motors are computer controllable over a main serial interface. I assisted in a variety of aspects, including onsite setup, soldering the custom SMD pc boards, building the plumbing for the fire effects, and designing some CNC cut parts.
