    A representation of the brain is laboriously formed from thousands of drops of melted solder using a soldering iron.
    Every drop of solder telling the electricity (the positive charge from the left and the negative charge from the right) to turn the light on. Enclosed in resin and put onto a plinth made from the melted iron burner, 'Light of thought' is not only a lighting object but also a specimen.
