hardworking circuit #1.3

Wong Chun-hoi (Hong Kong)

hardworking circuit #1.3 is a realisation of a schema of monotonous, repetitive circuit, using as many units of relay switch as possible to bridge up the sequential extension of cables, merely for the purpose of electricity connection.

Artist’s Statement

I have a strong urge to maximise the potential of tools and raw materials in my hands, to push them in order to feel their limits. “How dumb can an electronic circuit function?” This question has always been lingering in my mind. Conventions of circuit design predicate primarily upon functionality and economic return. In response, in hardworking circuit #1, I have created an excessive, and almost unnecessary circuit system, just to turn on some electronic devices.
