Tanya Aguiñiga: Rope LightsPosted: June 12, 2012
Lighting, textiles and sculpture come together in Tanya Aguiñiga’s organically composed wall installations. Adaptable to endless configurations on or off the wall, the pieces integrate traditional crochet craft technique with an artist’s approach to design. The drama of Aguiñiga’s Rope Lights increases with number as they come alive in choreographed compositions.
From Tanya Aguiñiga: These compact fluorescent lights are covered in hand-knitted 100% cotton rope that is custom made in Los Angeles. They are made to order by the foot and are modular. They live in a space between minimalist light art and 1970′s crochet while paying homage to the ubiquitous office space lighting.
