When we start with “what if?” we usually get to “here’s how.” Pinecones open up their scales in the heat of a forest fire to release the seeds that will grow a new tree. What if the heat of light could open a lamp to release light into a room? We used heat sensitive bi-metallic muscle wire to shift the levers attached to wooden fins and created a lightscape.
