    The Franklin Institute science museum in Philadelphia hired me to create a series of 22 infographics to illustrate the various components of their new Electricity exhibit.
  • This illustration explains how static electricity works on an atomic level...
  • ...and it accompanied a station that let kids have a "hair-raising" electrical experience!
  • This infographic was designed to show the percentage of electricity that comes from each power source in the United States.
  • This illustration explains how lightning works.
  • This illustration explains how the different types of lightbulbs convert electricity into light...
  • ...and it accompanied a station showing each of the lightbulb types in action.
  • This illustration accompanied a large dancefloor that used kinetic energy (museum-goers dancing on the floor panels) to power a large overhead Tesla Coil...
  • ...so when enough power was generated through dancing on the tiles, the Tesla Coil would put on quite a light show!
  • I also created a huge mural that wrapped around two walls of the exhibit that showed a city power grid morphing into a network of electrical synapses.
     
    Overall this was a hugely rewarding project to work on, and it was great to check out the exhibit and see my illustrations in such a large, interactive environment.
