I like this, It's a cool concept that could be turned into a series of interesting photos.

Thank you very much Karl - I took a few setups like this over the course of a few nights - this was my favourite - but next winter, I hope to get even more like it - I like the idea of a scientific light painting scene - would love to lay my hands on test tubes and other lab stuff...!

The lighting in interesting, and it's definitely a good premise. I'd encourage you to more.

The only suggestion I can think of is to experiment with the foreground and background ... maybe they don't have to be a solid black. This lab glassware would look "interesting" in a kitchen, for example - especially an older one. Or perhaps with "mad scientist" type props in the background ... or in this setting, but casting long scary shadows.

There's a lot you can do with this, IOW. Good luck. Post more.
