A Massive Bolt of Inspiration
What may surprise you most about this installation, where a heart-stopping 18-foot spark jumps across two 32-foot towers – is that this artwork is interactive! No, you can’t get near that jolt of electricity, but you can play the keyboards that ignite the action. This “work of awe” is created by a collaborative from California, dedicated to sharing large works of science, engineering and art.
Electricity and water are not besties. The Sextant Tesla Coils will need to take a rest in wet weather. In addition the operators will take a break from 3:30 - 5:00 pm each day for lunch.
Those with pacemakers or other critical electromagnetic devices should not be in the area.
