Matches Idea 2 by Caen-N Matches Idea 2 by Caen-N
Matches Idea is the third in my series to use matchsicks in lightglobes... and was the hardest. The time to light it and get the globe ontop and get the photo was difficult to say the leaset, with such little air in the bulb it goes out very fast.

My series of Ideas is a social commentary on societies “throw away culture”.
The Edison light globe is a dead technology but one that had a massive impact on the world, with most of the evidence of this invention being simply trashed and replaced.

Please check out the other works in the series.
& thanks to [link] Sean-E for the suggestion

Like it. It must be very difficult to take the picture, but you´ve done it very good. Impressive!

But yet this would give such an interesting concept for lanterns or small tea lite candles.
Always liked the look of light bulbs. So easy to forget how rustic it looks and yet how much it astounded the world.

Is this all the same lightbulb, or did you have three bulbs next to each other to get this picture?Really cool, btw :D
Reply
:iconcaen-n:
Caen-N Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011
it's the same bulb, the flame only lit for about a second at the most, so getting the photo of it was pretty tricky.

Thanks

Caen-N Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011
thanks, but its a secret ;)
nah, i cut the globe open lit the match and had about a second to get the photo before it went out. i must have gone through 20 matches to get it right.
