Electrical circuits, crocheted plastic, found objects

Suffuse/Suffice is a site-specific installation, which utilizes multiple sculptural objects as the primary components. These sculptural objects are comprised of electrical circuits enclosed in orbs made of crocheted industrial plastic. The circuits incorporate a combination of lights and small fans. The crocheted plastic works to diffuse the light emitted by the sculptures at the same time that it catches wind by the fans. In addition, certain crocheted orbs contain lenses, prisms or found materials that work to manipulate the light.
