learning experience!: ungodly noise maker.



i’m currently taking a class called electronics as an art material. thus far it’s mostly building impermanent circuits, but i’m enjoying it immensely. on the breadboard is a speaker connected to a potentiometer and a photo cell. the brighter the light, the more ungodly the noise it makes. think of a man without vocal cords holding one of those fake voice boxes to his larynx and screaming. a pyrrhic victory, you are both triumphant when it works and also absolutely mortified.

 

materials used: 1k resistor, 10k resistor, 100k potentiometer, .10uF capacitor, 8 pin oscillator, 1 photo cell, 1 speaker, a bunch of wires, a breadboard, a power source, and a flashlight.
