What may surprise you most about this Beakerhead 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. Maybe you'll want to place your hand on the sensor of a 12-foot lotus, and you will see your heartbeat pulse in the lights of the giant stem and flower. Now, add a friend. You will see both heartbeats light up with different rates. Here’s the social art part. The heartbeats start to beat in sync. Up to 20 people can participate at once. Fireflies got nothing on this! This is a free event, tickets are not required!
