For my first time of my life, I made a switch. I was very curious about the joints between the different components. Therefore, I decided to focus on different ways to attach them. I knew that I do not want to use a breadboard, even though it can make life much easier. Choosing to build the circuit with a coin battery and to emit enough light I had to connect the LEDs in parallel. In order to join the LEDs I had to soldered them.
The next step was thinking of a switch. For a long time I was longing to sculpt, thus I was determined to create with my hands.
Super Sculpey was used to make the hands, the wires were inserted into each palm and a 3V battery was embedded in the right hand.
When holding hands together the LEDs glow.
