The project consists of a glove, and a crystal skull. The glove contains circuits and conductive aluminium pads on the palm, and the skull has a cork top, with a 10MM LED in the top, powered by more conductive aluminium pads.
Above, Right to Left: The parts to the piece. A glove with conductive circuitry, a glass skull, and a cork with a 10MM LED and Conductive plates.
Above: An interaction of placing a hand on top of the skull to complete the circuit. A person would put on the glove, wrap the strap around the hand which would complete half the circuit and battery pack, and grab the skull on the conductive aluminium plate to illuminate the skull.
The project’s main goal is to provide light in a alternative and dramatic way. The interaction is by grabbing the top of the skull, on its bottle neck, conductive plates in the cap power a hidden LED, illuminating the clear skull.
The power is requiring a connection between conductive plates, illustrated above.
