2019 circuit board designed in KiCad (colors correspond to KiCad layers - not my choosing, but interesting op art effect). The circuit sings a simple “pretty bird” song as demonstrated in the following video…
Detail of a work in-progress from a new print series on electrical naturalism, 2019. The circuit on the electronic wren sings “pretty bird” when the lighting is favorable. The antique illustrated bird is an Audubon print.
A sculptural bird circuit that sings “pretty bird” when the ambient light conditions are favorable. The exterior is folded Mylar and the interior is an analog electronic chirp generator soldered freeform. This part is part of a larger work in progress.
Above: images of the freeform chirping circuit (stabilized to Mylar using glue) prior to insertion into the bird’s body.
