Additional info

A gyroid surface comprised of two lengths of custom circuitboards (PCBs) each supporting an LED circuit. One surface of the PCBs is plated in gold, the other is painted matte black. Krugman collaborated with Sabetta Matsumoto and Henry Segerman to rationalize a triangulated mesh describing the gyroid surface using only two PCB lengths. On either end, the PCBs feature a concentric circular geometry on both faces allowing them to pass electricity amongst the entire gyroid form without wires or additional connectors. The sculpture runs at 12VDC and is ETL listed.
