Bottle Cage

76 X 107 X 168 cm   .   acrylic, glass, glitter, feathers, fishing line, fiber optic thread, and other found items on metal   .   (2013)

Giant parrot cage advertised on Freecycle came home with me. Compelled to include bottles again. I envisioned light and color mixing to form a living type of sculpture. Tried optic fiber, inspired by Bruce Munro's 'Field of Light,' but whoah, that stuff is expensive. Home-made lightbox didn't work so well. Will re-visit this some time.
