Flux Capacitor Chandelier

Artist Statement: The base (top) of this hanging light was the bottom of my desk chair until I leaned back in the chair one day and it broke, leaving me with a five-spoked wheel. So, I took the wheel, threw on a veritable mess of threaded steel rod, attached some hot pink strings to hang a grid of flat black linoleum polygons with reflective tops, shone down 5 light bulbs (one on each end of the old chair base) such that illumination gets reflected up and out throughout space. Now, I can’t promise anything, but it is entirely within the realm of possibility that some teenage heartthrob from the future will show up in a Delorian and need this very piece of dining room lighting to help him get back.
