Exhibition of 3 large chandelier-like structures, based on 19th-century engraved images by German zoologist Ernst Haeckel, made of transparent silicone rubber.
Using a scaled up 2-D pattern, I made the initial forms in clay, from which I made 2-part plaster molds, then cast each form in polyurethane rubber. There are about 800 pieces of individual pieces of rubber in total, stitched together with monofilament. The rubber forms are suspended by an armature made of copper tubing. The works radiates light by internal lighting fixtures.
