Engineering and fabricating the serpentine pipes and CNC machined custom light fixtures was full of challanges, but I was also tasked with developing the computer controlled lighting system. Having built computers, repaired electronics, and learned many software programs, this was an exciting opportunity to take my technology skill-set to the next level. From concept to installation, our team developed and designed a computer controlled lighting system that controls the ~120 LED light fixtures.
Another exciting aspect of this project was the integration of the sculpture into a $500 million dollar construction site, including the coordination of installing a custom air-cooled control panel, approximately 1000' of electrical conduit, 10,000' of data/power cable and hundreds of square feet of blocking.
