Odu: vibration 1
Collaboration with Chris Ryan Williams

Tiffany lamps, light bulb, bonsai wire

Light Study
This lamp sculpture was created for Chris Ryan Williams’ music composition, Odu: vibration 1. The idea was inspired by my random studies of artificial lights, newly discovered interest in lamp making, and most importantly, two musicians' memories around light.
During the summer of 2022, I worked on a light deconstruction project every day for seven weeks. While it wasn't always as literal as taking apart a lamp, that obsession stayed with me. One question that emerged from this collaboration was, "How do I deconstruct a Tiffany lamp?"
