Freeform circuits or Dead Bug Prototyping! This is a rabbit hole and a half. That is one of the most extreme examples, but there are others out there that are also quite impressive in different ways.

Peter Vogel has some incredible work and is quite prolific: https://bitforms.art/artists/vogel

Eirek Brandal’s works tend to be noisy and more freeform. And gorgeous. http://eirikbrandal.com

Mohit Bhoite’s sculptures tend to the simpler side, featuring fantastic geometric elegance. https://www.bhoite.com/sculptures/

I have always liked neat uniform circuitry, but never took the time to do that much. :grinning:
