so my thinking started with this idea of the everyday domestic light bulb;
an electric lamp consisting of a transparent or translucent glass housing a wire filament that emits light when heated by electricity.
so, i intended for my final design to look something like, this piece below by Barend Hemmes. i used this source as a primary reference to understand the fabrication of a 3dimensional lightbulb.
drawing in rhino;
it is a program quite new to me, but thanks to toolbox and other online tutorials i seem to be picking it up.
these are a few shoots of my work in progress..
the frame of this bulb is to be constructed out of a clear/opaque acrylic perspex. where i want to achieve this sense of transparency; something that i believe is a dominent characteristic of ‘the everyday domestic light bulb’.
im thinking of skinning my light bulb with a wrapping technique, the material i was thinking to wrap and skin my bulb in was some type of thread, but i clearly need to spend some more time researching as i would like to use some form of transparent thread?
