A Rose by any other name?

This was my personal favorite exhibit at burning man but I think it was most other people's (that I talked to) as well. This bush is the actual size of a rose bush made of hand worked copper and blown glass. Those are photovoltaic cells within the leaves you are looking at. Each glass rose has several bulbs of different color. Durning the day the cells charge a battery(in the roots)and a sequencer causes the flowers to "bloom" different colors during the night. I can not convey the beauty of watching this. I never got to meet the artist god/goddess that created this but I want it.
