Pickle Power – Bompas & Parr Present the World’s First Gherkin Chandelier

Pickle Power – NOWNESS.

“We always knew there was scientific magic contained within the humble pickle,” says Sam Bompas, one half of the experimental culinary duo, Bompas & Parr. “Everyone is pickling right now, and we were interested in pushing it to the extreme. We knew the time had come to create the world’s first gherkin chandelier.” Directed by David Lane of the London-based food journal The Gourmand and co-directed by Jeremy Valender of Pundersons Gardens, the luminous show-and-tell film unpacks the science behind the steampunk-esque contraption, boasting over 60 pickles in explosive, electrical sequence. “The sodium chloride or salt contained within gherkins reacts to an electric current, lighting up, fizzing and crackling while forming a burnt vinegary smell,” says Bompas, whose previous projects with partner Harry Parr include inventing such creations as glow-in-the-dark jelly, scratch-and-sniff cinema and a boating lake filled with gin. “It’s mind-bogglingly dangerous. If you’re near it when it is turned on you will certainly be electrocuted.”


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
