Project Description

Experiments in Galvanism (2003)

In “Experiments in Galvanism” a miniature computer with webserver is implanted into the dead body of a frog. Servomotors are connected to the legs, and by using a web interface remote viewers can trigger movement in either the right or left leg of the frog, thereby updating Luigi Galvani’s original 1786 experiment causing the legs of a dead frog to twitch simply by touching muscles and nerves with metal.
