Lightning in a bottle at the Sonoma County Museum

We had a bunch of scientists and electrical engineers. I think they liked the lightning. There’s more video of other parts of the lecture to come. Not [...]

The Uira Engine – Art and Science lecture at the Sonoma County Museum

It worked! When you try new things on an experimental sculpture, you can’t always test them before the show, so you just have to just do it there and hope for the best. And it was amazing that it worked! I knew we had done our job right when we had a bunch [...]

Almost Scientific and The Neuron Chamber in Wired Video

When we did our last show at the Exploratorium I did a video interview with Wired about what The Neuron Chamber was and how it worked. I loved that they wanted me to explain in detail how it worked and not just give a 5 second sound bite. Well the video just went live and [...]
