Before and After

Progress on The Machine of Awesome Bright Liquid Blueness is going well. We have run into a couple software issues that Tim worked his way through and the speakers seem to be acting up a little, so they may need to be replaced. Otherwise, we have all the LED's, buttons, and water bottle filling unit operating very nicely.

Here is a maquette to hardware install side by side.

Here is the interior almost fully wired.

The back of the sculpture with its custom modified french cleat hanging system.

And Tim, programmer extraordinaire working on the opening sequence.

The software running the sculpture has been written from scratch by Tim and utilizes three separate micro processors. We have now got him set up on a proper desk in the studio as he is no longer allowed to leave!
