Concept

16 is formed by sequentially pouring three separate puddles of molten glass of varying opacity and colour over a horizontal plane. Each layer responds to the indeterminate shape of the previous pour to create a layered whole. Two of these pieces are then attached to house an internal light source.
Multiple 16s are supported by a modular armature system featuring a series of branch and knuckle components, which may be composed to create a tree-like structure. Each armature segment carries low-voltage electricity and diverges into 2-4 separate branches, allowing both vertical and horizontal installation on floor, ceiling or wall surfaces.
The armature enables unique installations ranging from modest to monumental, simple to complex, in an infinite variety of possible forms. The armature includes a kit of interchangeable parts that simply click together for custom, on-site compositions.
