3 Circuit Bends

Here are three circuit bends that have been waiting around for awhile for me to get finished.






This would be my first bend. It has the least in the way of switches and such. That said, I think it is the most "usable", although i suppose circuit bending isn't exactly aiming at usability. It has the added benefit of three contact points and a nice little led flicker.
















I had red spray paint. I used it.
It helps.
This has three tiny push button switches that I accidentally bought from jameco. Luckily they were useful. If pressed a few times they trigger some rather nasty unstoppable loops. They are quite unpredictable and sometimes just kill the circuit. One can hear an example of a non circuit killing loop towards the end of the sound sample. The sample is played on an annoying widget.
It has ads.
I have to fix that.















I about fried this thing ten times over but luckily it survived. This keyboard has a sweet sampling function that I was never able to fully exploit to make it do something other than what it was intended. Someday maybe.

The Last Painting of Letters

This is the last in the short series of word search puzzles. Possibly.
It is not much of a word search at all.
It is about as subtle as can be.
It took a long time.
It is good that it is done.
It is untitled.
It was quite hard to tell when to stop. Usually I do not have trouble knowing. Being that most all of the letters were drawn and then erased, I stopped when the eraser was down to nothing.

Receipts Again

These are even older than the other receipts.
I have quite a few more of these. I could make them all day if I desired. I have yet to.

The other ones are in an out of business sushi restaurant/club in Detroit that once they once showed in that may back in business soon - supposedly.

Either that or, even better, they are on the wall of the house of the owner an out of business sushi restaurant/club in Detroit that once they once showed in, that may or may not be back in business soon - supposedly.

Receipts


I did these awhile ago. I thought about continuing and making them gigantic but at some point you have to move on and do other projects that are completely unrelated.






Wordless Wordsearch

There actually are words in it. This is impressively hard to avoid. I failed. You have failed at things as well. You know how it can be. So be it.
