OUR ELECTRIC FISH INSTALLATION IN URUGUAY
Isn’t it wonderful when you get to create something new with a great team? And to go to Uruguay, considered one of the most progressive countries.
I had the opportunity to work on an interactive installation that is lit by the discharges of electric eels.
It’s a Spelman College project that is the brainchild of one of our biologists who is looking to better understand electric fish. The forms were created with the 3D printer in our Innovation Lab and then heated to transform the shape.
Along with biologist, Gene McGinnis, sculptor, Joe Bigley, engineer, Jerry Volcy and students Jordan Daniels and Celeste Braddock we were invited to bring a wonderful installation to life in a courtyard in Montevideo Uruguay.
The project will be installed at Spelman in the fall along with a film about how it was made.
