The Sonic Articulation of Sunbeams

Constructed for the Bakken Museum of Electricity. This project uses the sun to create and ever changing auditory landscape. As the sun passes overhead, small solar actuators harvest the energy and propel sounds through the large megaphone structure.

The Sculpture was on view at the 2012 Minnesota State Fair at the Eco Experience Building. It has since been finished with a rust patina to provide a long life with a nice finish.

This project was a collaboration between Daniel Dean, Emily Stover, and myself. Construction of the steel and wood was carried out by TandemMade in Minneapolis.
