Golden Orbs is a series of suspended fractal cloud-like sculptures. Modelled on a simulated brain neurone, interaction stems from what each sculpture is able to observe.
Fitted with a webcam, each sculpture monitors the space underneath for physical activity. Random lighting sequences are then seeded from any detected activity. Networked together, emergent lighting patterns unfold across the whole series of sculptures. These patterns are reminiscent of those found in EEG scans of the brain.

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon, Lego or eBay to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So a massive shoutout to everyone that enables this place. Thanks!
