Brass and Glass to Class

by Thyrza

This is the type of chandelier I found at a thrift store- I am sure you have all seen these from the 80's.
My chandelier on display at Gentille Allouette in Gastown Vancouver alongside this amazing dress made from newspapers by Angela Bright. I was very excited as to how well the dress and the chandelier went together in conceptual styles.

  • I re-wired and painted the fixture. I then created crystal chandelier strands in Photoshop and printed them on backlight film to create the drops.

Project Description add commentupload similar

A surrealist interpretation of a classic chandelier
this piece has been built on a re-purposed lighting
frame.  Using <i>image strands</i> - prints of crystal
chandelier strands on acetate covered backlight film -
the viewer is invited to re-examine their notion of  
traditional lighting.
Unlike the inflexible chandelier, the versatility of  this
piece lies in its ability to be reinterpreted by simply
suspending different <i>image strands</i> from the frame.
Image strands can be customized to suit your decor,
mood or style preferences.
