Artist's description:

This assemblage is now with a collector in Kent, UK

This assemblage pays tribute to Sir Archibald Muncie, amateur photographer and inventor of The Amazing Thought Generator. When applied to a shaved head the device converts brain waves into electricity purely by the power of thought alone. By concentrating hard on particularly long words Muncie’s machine was able to light torch bulbs and power small electric motors. Just by concentrating on the longer words in a 1914 dictionary he was able to produce enough electricity to light one room of his daughter’s dolls house and power his newly invented electric bedside alarm clock.

This replica honours the inventor’s transition from old technology to early printed circuits and marks his recent sad passing at the age of 110.

Made from a 1930's wooden 'Lotto' box, a Victorian metal picture frame, a vintage bisque doll's head a Victorian trinket box lid, original 1914 dictionary pages and printed circuit board. The free-standing piece measures 284mm high by 200mm at the base. The base has a depth of 106mm.
