A Tesla coils inner workings...


Included in my "2012 - 366 Days" project.

Playing around with exposure and plasma ball...


ISO200 - f/5.6 - 85 mm - 0.2 sec.

Plasma ball... Close-up ;)


Tripod - ISO100 - 0,4 sec - f/5.6 - 85 mm.

My brand new plasma lamp ;)

Pink Plasma Orb


Tripod - EOS 400D - ISO 100 - 0.4 Sec.- f/5.6 - 85 mm.


...this kind of looks like a uterus I think..!

Sunrise Lightning. The Tesla Coil at the Bonneville Power Administration's High Voltage Test Laboratory. With this device the technicians create lightning to test the electrical components going into the grid that supports the Northwest Power needs.

Today we went to Makers Faire in San Mateo, California. Creativity sparks everywhere, this year mainly with 3D printing and small drones.


Sparks literally fly off these Tesla coils producing the bass sound of rock music. The guy on the keyboard fires of high voltage, modulated in a different frequency with each key. The drummer and electric guitar player add to the psychedelic experience. Four teenagers from the crowd dance in the faraday cage.


This is a balanced HDR photo based on a single 0.6 sec exposure.

Originally invented by Nikola Tesla after his experimentation with high-frequency currents in an evacuated glass tube for the purpose of studying high voltage phenomena, a plasma globe is usually a clear glass orb filled with a mixture of various gases—most commonly helium and neon, but sometimes also xenon and krypton—at low pressure (below 0.01 atmosphere) and driven by high-frequency alternating current at approximately 35 kHz, 2–5 kV, generated by a high-voltage transformer. A much smaller orb in its center serves as an electrode. Plasma filaments extend from the inner electrode to the outer glass insulator, giving the appearance of multiple constant beams of colored light.

I know why the caged man stings.

Between two worlds of different ideas, a meeting point helps to shape the common ideas.

Close up running at low power. If you want to see the very finest collection of vintage and reproduction Pancake coils check out Jeff Behary has done an amazing job keeping these coils alive and sparking.

Lightning from Tesla coils illuminate the music of Arc Attack at the Freakaliscious Safari, Burning Flipside 2009, Austin Texas, May 23, 2009. ArcAttack is a performance art group that plays music through a combination of instruments and two Singing Tesla Coils.
