The article describes Automatic, a Weblights writ large installation, created by metalsmith Janos Korban and architect Stefanie Flaubert. Automatic represents one of Korban/Flaubert's most monumental uses of tetrahedra. Instead of light emitting diodes, Automatic incorporates off-the-shelf T8 fluorescent tubes within truncated triangular prisms fabricated from 7-foot-long aluminum arms.
