Crappy photos of my piece for The Iron Giant Mini Tribute at A Little Known Shop in Anaheim! Show is September 13th and ONE NIGHT ONLY!
Housed in a 16” x 4” x 4” case, I cut out archival quality inkjet prints of a piece I originally painted digitally and arranged them carefully among circuits and wires. My lovely partner designed the circuit board for me so that the blue bulb on the bolt blinks! I wish I had a gif :(
Anyway, I learned a ton about circuits and soldering and how not to breath in fumes from molten lead. I’ve never had the patience for the elaborate, gorgeous paper cuts that I see at shows, so I decided to keep the paper elements simple and let the LEDs be the “wow” factor here :)
Brinicles are super saline, super cooled water that sinks beneath the surface, freezing the water immediately around it. It continues sinking until it reaches the bottom, where it then starts to spread out covering the ocean floor with beautiful icicles.
