Lasvit, the Czech glass manufacturer and design firm, has recently created the Neurons exhibit at Prince Mahidol Hall, the events space for Mahidol University in Thailand. The glass and light installation hangs from the ceiling of the hall's central atrium, and it is capable of lighting up in conjunction with music playing in the space.
The Neuron exhibit takes its name from the shape of the glass nodes out of which it's comprised. Those glass stars are shaped like the firing neurons in the human brain, and that in turn is what inspired the function of the installation itself. Since music is such an inherently emotional and human phenomenon, the lights sparking in coordination is an apt artistic (though not literal) interpretation of the experience of hearing music.
