Neutrino flux update
Updates to the “Neutrino flux” proposal.
The suspended acrylic rods will no longer have messages engraved on the sides as they turned out to just not be sufficiently visible. Instead, there will now be a sound component to the piece. As the piece is activated (by a person approaching or touching a rod), along with the light display, a sound will be triggered. The sound will be randomly selected from about 100 different options including many messages about neutrinos, and sounds of ice cracking and refreezing.
Some of the possible messages are:
“One trillion neutrinos pass through your body every second.”
“A neutrino will hit an atom in you about every 30 years.”
“The IceCube neutrino experiment is one cubic kilometer of ice buried a mile deep in Antarctic ice.”
“Colliding neutrinos create complex flashes of light.”
“Neutrinos drive the power sources of the universe.”
“A neutrino will usually pass right through the earth without stopping.”
“Neutrino is Italian for little neutral one.”

“Neutrinos travel faster than light through ice.”
“If a fundamental particle can morph into another, what does it mean for identity of matter? Of humans?”
“What is a neutrino anyway?”
