Fluorescent lighting scultpure? Answered


Does anyone know how to make a sculpture using multiple fluorescent bulbs? I've seen a few and they always have small caps and wiring on the ends, but they look like standard products you could pick up somewhere.http://uploads.notempire.com/images/uploads/1-1073.jpg

Never made a sculpture out of 23 or so fluorescent bulbs, but I have made a
few self supporting lights with wire ends covered by a cap to avoid shocking
someone.

Every two lamps are driven by a ballast, each lamp takes four wires
as seen in your pictures.

You can elongate the wires coming out of the ballast in a fixture so long as you insulate them properly. I'm not sure how long you can make those wires but you want to keep them as short as possible. The end caps are a commercial product.
