Bogon Flux

Bogon Flux is the name of a steampunk-y, self-creating (and self-destroying) system of pipes and houses, and...well, it's easier to see than describe. Hamlet Au has a piece in New World News about the construct, located in the China sim. When I went to visit, I found a head with electricity flowing out of it:

and a giant eye that followed my every move:

The set of pipes and such does magically assemble then fall apart.

Houses appear and disappear.

The whole thing can grow to an impressive size. The creators provide a hard hat for closer inspection, or one can stand back and watch from a safe distance.

Of course, it's far from clear what the build is about, if, indeed, it is about anything. Which is perhaps the point.
