Proposal for the Harvard Arboretum Insectarium

The structure will be a cage in form of an igloo , made up of aluminum pipes, 16 mm in diameter, 6 meters wide and 2.5 meters high, with a combination of four silicon cells wired to six hanging polycarbonate big globes, each containing a photonic robot in shape of insect (photo 2 ). These insects have another solar cell so that all of the piece's movement can be powered by low-voltage sunlight. Alternately, the structure could be installed indoors with a powerful spotlight(s).
