Black Transistor

Brooch

Fine silver (oxidised); Steel

2009

 

The Transistor is probably the most important component in modern electronics. It allows the amplification of signals and currents. With it electronics are able to be made smaller and hold more information. Aside from all of that though, aesthetically it just looks really cool. It fittingly is reminiscent of a miniature amp or speaker.

I have to admit I had fun making both this piece and its counterpart. There is something really comical about it, as though it has a personality.
