The complete sphere lamp, 2015
looking up, looking down
Developed and produced in Addis Ababa, these works celebrate the visual and structural aesthetic of hand craftsmanship. An open, woven basket has been affixed to a circular mirror so that the mirror appears to bisect a complete braided sphere. Gaps in the basket’s weave allow views into the interior and allow light from a central bulb to shine through. An object designed to hold things – an object whose essence is linked to a relationship with other things – the basket here holds and contains its own reflection.
