Cubicle Christmas

Artist's statement: This wasn't really a tree... I just twisted the wires and moves around the components to make it look like a tree. The parts are just LEDs, resistors (i used 100 ohms) and a 9v battery. Wire structures are just the leads from the LEDs and resistors.

This is how I decorated my cubicle (imgur.com) (via Neatorama)

  1. I love the Magrittian phrase “This wasn’t really a tree… I just twisted the wires and moves around the components to make it look like a tree.”

    Surely every artist should be required to put that on all their work. “This isn’t really a lady’s face, I just smeared paint around on a canvas to make it look like a lady’s face.

    1. If it were simply a single wire across the terminals, it would be. However, the LEDs and resistors (the beige thingys) provide a more controlled energy release through the circuit via heat and light.

      1. But all that other stuff is in parallel with the LEDs and resistors.  If you have (say) 2 resistors in parallel, the total resistance uses the formula:
        Rtotal = (R1 * R2)  /  (R1 + R2)
        So if R1 == 0, the total resistance == 0.

        I can only think that the wires don’t have a good connection..
