Magnetic Suspension—“Egg in Space”
1996 - 1998
“Egg In Space” was to be entered in a local sculpture competition. Unfortunately, I never found time to perfect it. A blown out egg shell with a neodymium magnet was to be magnetically suspended under a crescent form. A modulated laser diode would illuminate the shell and simulate a heart beat. Sensors around the base would make the “heart rate” speed up as people approached the sculpture. The circuit board pictured here was more effective at making omelettes than it was at suspending eggs.
