A garden of giant carbon fiber flowers, each with a stamen made of flame. The flame changes size dynamically, reacting to an ambient soundscape triggered by the presence of a nearby viewer.

My roles:

  • Flower petal prototyping
  • Flower stem mechanical design
  • Blacksmithing and welding
  • Fuel system design and fabrication
  • Regulatory compliance
