This project is from a museum installation in early 2008 at the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah, GA. It features 100 glowing orbs dispersed around the room. Each has an embedded RFID tag, and when it's placed in the central "nest" sculpture, it changes the mix of the ambient sound in the room.

This is the precursor to the Nest installation, and took place in a rough, cave-like gallery space in Lacoste, France, in March 2007. It features 100 glowing lights, but this time they were all made of hollowed out white eggs, hidden in the cracks and crevices of the cave like glowing jewels. Each has an embedded RFID tag, and when it's placed in the central "nest" sculpture (made of wax), it changes the mix of the ambient sound in the room.

All electronics were hidden from view, behind the rocks. People were forced to contend with their fear of breaking the eggs, and were rewarded with the pleasure of changing the sound in the room.

Not sure why you say this as it takes me to the art sites I expected?

Is this an arduino project? If so is there an explanation of where the arduino is used? Is there one in each egg?

It looks to me like...

Eggs consist of an LED, coin battery, resistor, RFID tag.

Nests consist of an RFID reader, USB hub, PC or Mac.


I was not able to find anything Arduino or even microcontroller.

Yes but that's not advertising spam is it, there is nothing to buy.

I don't consider it spam.  I rather like it being here.

I am disappointed the web site didn't include more technical detail.  And a bit disappointed that the artist didn't throw in a microprocessor somewhere.  There were certainly plenty of opportunities!
