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.
