The science museum in London held an exhibition about Faraday’s life and work to mark the 200th anniversary of his birth. This is the model I made as a proposal for the entrance to the exhibition.

I helped Rex Garrod make cast the larger than life statue in fibreglass from an original victorian plastercast (not an easy task). I then surrounded him with everyday electrical gadgets made possible by his electrical discoveries. These switch on in sequence.

At the end of each sequence, a chain of LED lights buried just below the surface of the surface, switch on to give him a manic electrical grin.

After the exhibition closed in London it went to Hong Kong. Finally the statue was returned and has lived in my garden ever since. See also the remains of the wind clock, also now in the garden.
