Engineering Rebecca Schwarz - Solar Nerve

"Solar Nerve" by Rebecca Schwarz

Installed in front of the Burlington Electric Company
585 Pine Street, Burlington, Vermont

Rebecca's outdoor installation is intended to represent an active nerve.? It is solar powered and operates at night.? The structure consists of twisted copper wire supporting lengths of clear acrylic rod that are illuminated from the ends by bright white LED lights.? The lights animate to simulate electrical impulses coursing through the ganglia from the trees toward the central nerve body.? The animations are randomized to give a sense of life.


Whoa! Pretty cool!
