Studio Experiments / by LW

Playing with magnets... (I just realised you can also hear what I was listening to in the studio...)

A new work underway:

I bought some silicon hose to experiment with in water, but discovered that it reacts really nicely to a 'flick' on one end - the wave of motion then runs the entire length of the hose. So started testing to turn this into a work, based on the 'flick' closing a circuit.

Test for contact circuitry - when the hose is flicked the alfoil makes contact, causing the motor to turn...

Nutting out the circuit to run the piece, final version:

Setting up to test the above circuit:

Tested and proven that it works! Yay!

I will post some images once the work is actually at a photogenic stage. LW.
