About the project
The programmed lighting of Connected shows the speedy passage of an impulse travelling between neuron cells. Viewers are confronted with two giant, inflated cells that communicate with each other by sending and receiving signals to and from each other. The artwork draws attention to science, the significant role it plays in our daily lives and how it helps the development of artificial intelligence or machine learning.

The artwork CONNECTED based on different aspects of science and its impact on our everyday life. The two giant inflatable neuron cells communicate, send and receive signals from each other.
Connected was created for the 2021 Zsolnay Light Festival, in cooperation with the University of Pécs Medical School in Hungary, and could be seen at the newly opened campus. We then exhibited the artwork in Utrecht, the Netherlands, and in Stockholm, Sweden. The predecessor of this artwork was our similar-themed piece from 2018, A.N.N. Only, this time we tried to create a much more physical experience: spectators could get close to the colossal neuron pieces and even enter the cellular network
