8 x 8 x 8”
80 x 30 x 15" Red roots, steel wire
Copper, electronics, solar power. 16 x 20 x 160’. Burlington Electric Department. At night solar power stored from a panel located to the side of the sculpture powered flashes of light, “nerve impulses”. These traveled between the trees and to and from the central nerve body.
This project would not have happened without The Burlington Electric Department, YouthBuild Burlington, SEABA, Queen City Steel, Vermont Solar Engineering, AstroPower, Energy Photo Voltaics, Conant Custom Brass, and many others.
