The Neuron Chamber (With Almost Scientific & 5 Ton Crane)
Shortly after the Steam Punk Tree House was completed in 2007 Alan Rorie, another 5 Ton Crane member, approached me about building a kinetic sculpture that spoke to the research he was doing as a neuro-scientist.
The Neuron Chamber was completed in 2008 by the Almost Scientific team :
Alan Rorie’s description of the Neuron Chamber:
The Neuron Chamber depicts three neurons under observation in a mysterious tank. Neurons are brain cells that create our experiences by generating electrical impulses called action potentials that travel their length. These impulses are represented by 15, 000 volt electrical arcs twisting down their length in response to buttons on the tank. The neurons are sculpted from forged steel to demonstrate the irregular and textured morphologies observed in the laboratory.
