Overview

This glimmering suspended chandelier-like artwork can be thought of as gently rotating, dimensional mandala. This chandelier has a baroque upcycled aesthetic that playfully transcends the utility of the can-tab. Because the can-tabs are reflective, and the artwork rotates gently, the appearance of this artwork will be continually changing depending on the available light and one’s viewing position within the building. Beautiful moiré patterns emerge when viewers circumnavigate the art. Here it is shown still in various light conditions and in a video.
