Structural Circuits

Dorothy Chi Hung Lam

Structural circuits is a way of rethinking circuits and sculpting with electricity.


Structural circuits is a way of rethinking and sculpting electricity. The circuits are autonomous, which when completed in parallel will create a larger form, and perhaps eventually grow into circuit organisms.

Unlike other circuits where the goal is to be as efficient as possible and be concealed, there are no hidden parts in Structural Circuits; every component exists as a part of the form as well as to perform a function. It is the parallel of utility and aesthetics.

A virtual 3-dimensional model will be generated in Processing and is an integral part of the project as

in understanding the shapes, forms and circuits.
