Aperion

A 14’ tall singing Tesla sculpture, Aperion is made of copper and stainless steel and electricity, depicting a flower resting on three large leaves.

Three smart solid state Tesla Coils, each capable of arcing 4+ feet. Each coil is capable of a variety of effects including burst modes, single shot mode, long pulse mode, and an infinite number of other effects with continuously variable pulse width and PRF parameters.

All three coils can play music through the high voltage arcs. The audience can interact with the Tesla coils with three theramins, and “play” the coils. Aperion can also play pre-recorded music and take input from external ambient sound systems.
