Sophi will tell the story of being handed 75 air solenoids and some other hardware totalling about $1000 for free. What else could there be to do, but buy a compressor and build an art piece?

Sophi will take the audience through the concept of the piece and talk about designing and buildingĀ a work of artĀ using solenoids, balloons and music.

She will also discuss some other recent projects, including one with Oculus Rift and possibly a snow machine.
