“Vessel for 10 suns” is a name of a circuit board designed as an appendix - dongle - for found synthesizer organ (Yamaha sk-20) to be able to temporarily host solar electronic bugs (parent project >> Electronic Entomology) in it’s own body. Keyboard is modified and converted to be able to take solar electronic bugs’ tiny pulses as an input and then bugs can collectively create musical composition. Musical composition is specific to the collections of up to ten bugs participated in particular performance or installation. Sculpture is made up of 8 different overlapping parts that creates a temporary shrine structure which is annotated in anatomical title image below.
