Introspection

David Gappa's vetroartglass.com installation titled "Introspection" is a visible interpretation of an often hidden process in our bodies: the communication of nerves. Designed to capture the essence of thought as it pulsates through a field of synapses, Gappa's piece artistically translates the catalytic movement of energy as it transfers through our creative minds. 

A visually dramatic centerpiece, the intricate installation of glass and steel weighs 5,300 pounds and measures 50-feet wide by 40-feet long. Introspection consists of 175 LED-illuminated glass spires and 1,050 hand-blown glass spheres. Each five-and-a-half-foot spire is individually illuminated and can be controlled via CuePad to slowly pulsate an array of colors across the entire piece, similar to the electric impulses passed between nerve cells.

Todd Graham was the Lighting Designer and CueServer programmer for this project.

Interactive: How was CueServer used in this project?

Steven Glasow: The CueServer Pro (CS-900) was used to drive 245 Micro-LED RGBW fixtures necessary to illuminate the sculpture. At 50" x 40", weighing an impressive 5,300 pounds, the intricate installation of glass and steel consists of 175 glass spires and 1,050 hand-blown glass spheres. Each five-and-a-half-foot spire is individually illuminated, and when programmed, slowly pulsates an array of colors across the entire piece, similar to the electric impulses passed from one nerve cell to another.

Interactive: How would you describe your experience with CueServer?

Steven Glasow: Very reliable with a great user interface and desirable price point.
