English artist Venspace creates sculpture with broken lightbulbs
English artist Ashley Wallis (aka Venspace) deconstructs what we know of the familiar standard lightbulb to create a poetic installation comprised only of suspended pieces of broken bulbs. Her delicate sculpture, simply titled "Suspended Shattered Lightbulbs", is enhanced with a variety of colored lights, playing on reflection, shape, and the paradox of beauty and danger.
The artist explains the work on her official blog: "Tornadoes consist of a large mass that is suspended above the world that sends a looming threatening presence, but at the same time have a beautiful order to their chaos. The shattered glass gives the sense of something fragile has been broken and is in a delicate state, but at the same time, is now potentially a danger."
