Freeform/ Deadbug/ flywire circuits Answered

I've been getting into diy electronics and awhile ago I discovered Freeform (aka Flywire aka Deadbug) circuits and was immediately enamored. Recently Hackaday ran a Circuit sculpture contest, and there were some really great submissions, including The Ring Of Lights, 430man evolution, and one of my favorites, HYPNO-BUTT!

This had me wondering what other works of art are out there waiting to be admired. I'd love to see any circuits of this sort that anyone might have or know of.

It is funny how the most basic form of creating electronics is now seen as a form of art.
"Ancient" TV's and radios used the same stuff.
A piece of insulating board, holes for all parts and then the connections were made by soldering or crimping wires onto the legs of the electronics.
Quite a few of my quick and dirty circuits still use this approch, especially when size matters.
If you look for LED qubes you often see a great deal of soldering work to create these cubes - a form of art and skill in itself...
Back in my day it was one of the first soldering exercises to cread a wire cube that is tru for all angles and lengths...
