D1 is the first in the Diffusor series. Here the artist has recycled a traditional Cat-2 lighting fixture and turned it into an artwork, by adding a bespoke housing and technology. The piece is programmed to light up in a slow and subtle cycle, which highlights the way in which the LEDs are diffused behind the fitting. Currently these fittings are being removed from buildings and are being replaced with the latest LED lighting. Creating artworks from the fixtures immortalizes them, gives them a new lease of life and looks to how we might incorporate our waste into our lives in the future.

 

This technique can be used to create bespoke artworks. Please contact the artist for any further details.
