SPECTROSCOP

About

Spectroscop is a Romanian based electronic art and design project which creates [dys]functional spectr-objects using recycled electronics and light.

For the Spectro-box series, Spectroscop uses recycled electronics, mainly computer motherboards, to build pseudo-instruments as functional lighting objects that bespeak the machine-age aesthetic.

Inspired by scientific apparatus used for visualizing light signals like the spectrometer and apparatus used for measuring electrical signals like the oscilloscope, each Spectro-box is designed around an electronic symbol. These symbols are made of glass tubes, then filled with rare gases, like argon or neon.
