11/2: Solar Creatures

Today we will experiment with energy harvesting module, solar cells!

Bugs sing to the light. Like us, they respond to environment. Like us their body effect their voices. Fluctuating flow of electrons through their semiconductor heart, we hear their characters, tendencies, and their favorite places. Oscillation is a phenomenon we experience everyday like a beating heart, a swing in the playground, tide of ocean, a combustion engine, summer and the winter and so on— oscillation is a effect of dynamic flow of energy. Filling and releasing, inhaling and exhaling, rising and falling, conception and articulation, rhythm of experience. The bugs articulates time through their body.
