The high top table in the library room now has a new light. It is made of varied rice papers and half round rattan. I used some old copper wire (from our new solar project) to connect the rattan and then paper-mached over the joints. You can see the copper wires poking through.
I encouraged the magic of haphazardness to make the form. There is also an orange glass temperature weight as a focal point. The light is soft and it holds my attention with so many details: wood pieces within the rice paper, the shine of the copper, the way the rattan line moves the composition.
The light with wire was purchased at Ikea.
It doesn’t hurt if you bonk your head into it, not a bit.
Welcome to Nina’s Blog. I am quickly classified as a public artist, generally meaning art for the public realm. It is different than a gallery/museum way of thinking. My way of making public art has manifested more traditionally as a site specific sculpture for a fire station. It encompasses some gorilla installations, some home and environmental designs and most recently many apartment developments. Usually having a theme, like; solar powered, low income, green, and educational. Apartment complex art is not interior design. The viewing audience is a hybrid of the general public and private art in a public space. I enjoy the variety.
