Thread-topic ~e; tree-branch antenna

Nice work, Brian
Good ideas about electrostatic pieces, as well.
I do miniature driftwood art pieces. Recently did
a mobile, using 8# fishing line & swivels, to 
occupy dead space above a stairwell. The slightest
draft engages movement with all pieces, and adds a
nice touch to 'dead space'. This is larger than most
of my work, occupying about 3' x 5' in space.
Am thinking of doing one, as you suggest, above TV
to get a constanct motion effect...thanks so much
for your continued exporations into art & form &
regard to EM forces.

[i planned to make antler antennae though found
some interesting tree branches by the river...]

	tree-branch television antenna

[it would seem there is 'decorative' potential
for using the vacant antenna holder on TVs to
add some detailing to technology-furnishings,
such that custom decorative antenna could have
lighting, could be electrostatic with strings,
which, when the TV is turned-on, would rise as
if that Van de Graff generator w/people's hair
going out in all directions, making turning-on
the TV an event (though the CRT always remains
on). wire and beads could also be used. would
imagine that the heat from the TV could become
an engine for a kinetic sculpture (such as the
photo-electric effect, with white/black sides
of some foil/material, which might spin, etc.)
