My current iteration of this project lives in three plastic containers from the container store. The project is about 4″ x 6″ and stands 4″ high.
My next task is to work on the form and function. A few targets I would like to meet with this:
- Use a fabric lamp shade to diffuse and warm the LED light source
- provide three separate water chambers to serve as separate cells
- Cast the enclosure out of pine rosin mixed with something translucent
- Turn the light off and on and dim it by raising and lowering the three Magnesium electrodes.
I have started to brainstorm what kind of mechanism would be intuitive to control the brightness of the lamp, and how the three cells might live together.
