Thunderbird Launch, George Boole Library:

On August 20th, after first installing my “Tesseract Medicine Wheel” across from the exhibition “Genius of George Boole: Life and Legacy,” my “Circuit Board Thunderbird” was placed on permanent display in the board room of the George Boole Library (overlooking the largest board room table I’ve ever seen).
