Podulous resembles a colony of biological cells, each is cell an independent but interconnected part of a larger organism. The cell boundaries are constructed of bronze, contrasting with the reflective stainless steel cell centers. When visitors press the tactile metal switch at the center of each cell, the sculpture responds with dynamically cascading patterns of light that emanate from the edge of an acrylic disk behind the switch, creating waves across the surface radiating from each point of interaction. The patterns of light evolve and react to each new visitor’s input. During the day, the stainless steel cell faces glint and shimmer in the sunlight.
