competition entry for L A M P 2018
Balance derives from the equivalent interaction of opposites and can be precarious or certain. As enticing as tenuousness can be, in these unsteady times, Glow Cube makes an argument for the beauty of a steady balance.
The fixture incorporates several opposites: transparency and opacity, rectilinearity and balance, geometric and natural form. These opposites work to demonstrate the transformative power of light. Dormant, the fixture is a simple suspended cube; illuminated it activates the form to reveal the complex balance within.
