Tesla Christmas tree 2009 [link]
Santa keeps current thanks to Peter Terren’s 30 foot Tesla Christmas Tree; it was shot by rotating a rod atop a Tesla coil while switching color filters. It still uses a long exposure and a rotating colored filter but the tree shape is outlined by sparks from a rotating rod on top of the Tesla coil. This gives the “Eye of Sauron” effect. Imagine then if that rotating rod is able to be raised from horizontal to vertical while still rotating.

The jeweled tree for 2009 is this, a tree made of tightly strung crystals. This glittering tree is located at the glass-covered mall, Bugis Junction. While this tree may not be as posh as the ones with actual Swarovski crystals and shimmering diamonds, it is by far one of the prettiest trees around. Unlike the conventional Christmas trees that are topped with stars or angels, this one wears a silver crown!

A bright pointy star on top and reindeer pulling sleighs form the Christmas tree decorations. The leaves, in this case, are really dangling strips of silver holographic foil that appear rainbow-colored under sunlight. Very nice.

The “face tree” is a tree of many faces. Hundreds of magazine cutouts of faces have been folded and arranged neatly together. Not particularly beautiful, but creative anyhow.
