Chandelier, 2005


A large, bright light built with halogen work lamps and extension coords. This piece has been built in a variety of configurations in a variety of locations. I wanted to create a sensorial, bodily experience of electricity, and to flood a space with light and heat. Installed as a 4,400 W light in the artists studio (January 2005), as a 15,000 W light at Outer Space, Sixth College (March 2005), and as an 8,000 W light at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (October 2005).
