About Sun Stomp
Experience the power and beauty of the sun through Sun Stomp; a solar powered light and interactive audio-visual environment. The monumental scaffolding sculpture features an interactive projection on one side and a solar array of sixteen 290 watt solar panels on the other. Electrical Energy is collected during the day and stored as Chemical Energy in a Battery Bank which provides electricity to the colorful array of LED neon lights illuminating the structure after dark. Participants are invited to stomp on the bleacher footboards to trigger sun-inspired visuals and amplified sounds of the Sun sourced from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.
