The Neuron installation is approximately 60ft x 40ft x 8ft. Each of the 175 handblown glass spires is approximately 5'-6" long and connected to a brushed stainless steel structure with DMX programmable LED lighs within. Above the 175 glass spires are 1,050 glass spheres suspended from a lattice work of stainless steel.
"Introspection" is a visible interpretation of an often hidden process in our bodies: the communication of nerves. Designed to capture the essence of thought as it pulsates through a field of synapses, this piece artistically translates the catalytic movement of energy as it transfers through our creative minds.
My goup consisted of three primary teams. The Gappa Glass glassblowing team, Matt with MP Custom Steel Fabrication and Gemini Lighting.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
