Thermosynthesis (2007)

Thermosynthesis is a series of sculptures made with lamps and alcohol thermometers ordered in radial ways imitating flowers. These thermometers vary their coloration according to room's temperature -that increases with people presence in the exhibition space-. In addition the sculpture's lamps of are activated by sensors that detect people. These lights irradiate heat and the thermometers fill themselves as the temperature increases. In some sculptures the temperature is limited by a thermostat -to protect the thermometers-, but in others this device does not exist and the spectator is able to blow some thermometers bulbs with his presence. This extreme interaction modifies the piece in an irreversible way, whit many “bleeding” thermometers. video:http://www.brightcove.com/title.jsp?title=987206045&channel=474428733
