Incredible Tower of LEDs

Ft2

This LED Tower from Gislain Benoit is absolutely mesmerizing.

Introducing ‘The Tower’, which features a unique design concept, allowing the viewer to see the electric pulse of the circuitry by using leds rather than diodes. Overall bringing life into the piece of art.

The top part of the tower contains the sculpture which is handcrafted using thousands of elementary electronic parts all enclosed in an elegant glass cylinder. and the bottom part has its power supply flooded into a neon light.

The diodes, which are one of the 3 basic electronic components that composes any microchip, have all been replaced by colorful light emitting diodes also known as LEDs.

This adds a completely new dimension to the design. Unlike modern circuitry where everything is enclosed and where the parts feel lifeless, now the viewer can actually see the sequences of binary signals flowing throughout the circuitry of a microchip. It’s a lot like the first computers, which had hundreds of blinking lights and switches.
