for this project, i abandoned the key chain for some reasons: i only have one key.. and the battery pack for the led i bought is too big for carrying around. I later got inspired from a project i did:

123

it was a inductive vase and so you can throw a piece of flower into it and light up the flower (light bulb on the top and inductive battery at the bottom).

CONTROL, BY YOUR PIECE OF MIND.

I designed that project a long while ago. it was just a concept and i felt really exciting to make this really,

although,,,

the look quite different:

however i felt good just because i made it physical, especially in a class called making studio..

 

here are images showing my progress:

 

started with finding the right saw to saw the metal tube

a little accident totally changed my design:

i found out the tubes have great capability of carrying electricity so i decided to make the tubes not only the structure but also a part of the circuit.

i tried to solder the wire onto the tube.

about 27 minutes later, i found out it is impossible.

for some reason, the wire and the tube can not be sticked together, so i had to figure another way to do this.

 

but i figured out it really soon:

i cut the tube with a crack and stuck the head of the wire in.

then i started on the flower head

i used the same material i used from last week bcuz i really like the translucenticity  of it, the light from the led is dimmed and soften.

another exploration on the flower head.

make supports under the platform so i can put the battery pack down there.

the stuffing actually expends the light which makes it powerful

that’s it. leave a comment if you’d like!

 

One thought on “one piece of flower”

  1. wow you approached this project from a very different perspective
    your finished piece features exposed LEDs and exposed fluffing and 1 (one!) stitch.
    your “featured” image does not show the subtle beauty of your nightlight.
    truly something else… even if accidental… the work speaks for itself
