Tension Thing

Judith Fegerl’s haie raising ceramic sphere – “20cm long human hair is embedded into the ceramic sphere. The object is charged by a high voltage generator (about 120-200kVolts) and the embedded hair is standing upwards due to the electromagnetic field. Rhythmical it slowly charges and discharges.” [via] – Link.
