The incredible image above is a photo of a newspaper cutting. It`s an Australian artist who built a Tesla coil and after insulating himself ,used his body in the position of Roden`s `Thinker`, as a conducter for the electric current. The beautiful blue white lines of electrical current form stunning patterns. (No pun intended). More inspiration for experiment with film and crochet!
