Not a lot of photos this week, but it’s been busy nonetheless! Ben finished up work on the Water Cube, which soft opened at the EQT Children’s Theatre Festival downtown on Thursday. In addition to installing a custom Horatio with more than 30 sensors to monitor the water and lighting systems, he also ended up designing a custom lighting controller and helping to troubleshoot some lighting problems. The end result is a pretty great installation – great art, great lighting, and still and sparkling water on tap!
We also spent some time this week getting the shop ready for a party! The Pittsburgh Office of Public Art is hosting an event for local artists as part of their Public Art 201 series, and we’re excited to meet some more Pittsburgh artists and chat with them about what we do.
And as always, Ben continues work on Horatio development – the outdoor beta unit spent some more time on the roof this week, and it held up great in those crazy windstorms. We’re hoping to get the chance to beta test it around the city this summer with the PGH Lab project – our application is in, and our fingers are crossed! We’ve had such great experiences working with the city on various projects over the last few years, we’d love to have them give Horatio a spin!
