E-Sculpture

Millennium Springs website with the comprehensive project information and the two live webcam images is the "E-Sculpture." The E-Sculpture component seeks to make a connection to the 21st Century. Two web-cams are used to capture and transmit real-time images of both the fountain and the Baobab Tree growing in the park. The use of information technology signifies this post-industrial era. A webpage is established to display images of the live Baobab Tree together with water jets of the fountain that embodies a tree's electrical life wave pattern. The sound based on the tree's electrical life data is also transmitted on the web. The representation of the Baobab Tree and its electronic life pattern conveys the vital reality of the environment as well as imaginative connections between the tree and the water fountain, the visual and the sound, as well as the physical and the electronic.
