Lightbulb from an Alternate Universe

Technofetishistic artist extrodinaire Datamancer has new images up of some of his projects. The Bugbulb shown above is my favorite.

The bodies of the fireflies are each made from a resistor. The heads are single beads from one of those beaded bank-pen style chains. The abdomens are obviously small amber LEDs. The wings are black cardboard which I edged with yellow paint, and the translucent wings are made from slivers of car window tint. The small white spacers are hard drive jumpers. A small toggle switch in the base turns the LEDs on or off.
