I have created two pieces
FILHARMONIC and HARMONICA BOTANICA.
Filharmonic is a sound and light installation of three lampshades hanging in the gallery of the house which was historically Armstrong's first electrical laboratory. The lampshades emit a score of crackling electricity and plasma bursts interspersed with pops of bright light.
using carbon filament lightbulbs
Harmonica Botanica is an experiment in itself. A bronze metal dome from a steel stand whilst underneath a pot plant waits. As visitors approach they hear an evolving score of music boxes and deep gongs. Electrodes clipped to the leaves and roots of the plant pick up signals from the rising sap, so we experience the unique event of hearing a plant growing.
