Inspired by the January Boston ATHF bomb scare, Rees Shad and I have created some publicly-installed solar lamps that proclaim, “I am not a bomb” in one of 12 languages. They are on view in the Kingston, NY Peace Park through October as part of their sculpture biennial. These Declarative Lamps begin speaking and blinking at dusk, and they use the current air temperature to determine how often they speak, much like the way crickets chirp. We’ve made available our materials list, code, and circuit schematic for public use.
