ITE #002 Star Tetrahedron
by: Crispin B. Hollinshead

This is the second of the Intentional Technology Experiments (ITE), an edition of one.

The basic shape is a star tetrahedron, consisting of a pair of tetrahedrons, one pointing up and the other down, with a common focus point. This reflects the balanced relationship between masculine and feminine. The crystals at the eight nodes have been charged with the intention of Gratitude, Love, and Awakening. LEDs shine through the crystals to the focal point of the structure. The sphere in the center reflects the energy out into the room. The current for the LEDs runs through the coils, recreating the geometry in electromagnetic energy. The graphic in the base is the Flower Of Life. The mirror reflects the energy into the room.

The crystals Brazilian Quartz and ball is Rose Quartz. The wood in the crystal nodes is Bubinga, and the cones and cubes are Ebony. The coil struts and ball supports are Maple, and the base is Madrone. The LEDs run on 4.5 volts DC.
