I don't quite understand this. It's a relatively simple circuit – is it the presentation that makes it interesting? The fact that a there's a physically visible change in the circuit?

MrBene, try look at it from a conceptual point of view not a technical one and see if it makes you laugh or think :)

Took a read through – and still don't get it. Is it a statement on the futility of technology? Maybe my mind is wired differently, but to me this is a very transparent device (no play on the Plexiglas housing intended), and, in being so, doesn't bring anything to the table.

As a piece of art, I like it. All good art makes people think.

Here we have a machine whose only action is a compulsion to switch itself off. The machine has no way to switch itself on – it is totally dependent on a human for that.

And that gives me something to think about.

I must say I want one of those now.
Now i see why Abstract art is actually art... and judging from the comments why no one gets it.
