Physics Sculpture: James Prell, Jhonas Dunakin

‚ÄčArtists Statement:

Our sculpture was designed to be functional and visual. The eyes are drawn to the lights around the wheel as they light up and turn. The sculpture only reaches its true potential while the unicycle is being riden.

On the circuitry side, the bulbs are wired into several branches with two bulbs in a series each. This allows for the same voltage through each branch and an even distribution of brightness as the bulbs are slightly dimmer in each branch of the circuit.
