Hidden Truths

Material  /  LED, resistance, E-poxy, copper wires, metal

Year         /  June, 2014 

Objects usually consist of many different parts. But we take them as a whole, 

as in: ‘The whole, being greater than the sum of its parts.’

Sometimes the hidden and unseen parts of an object are actually the most functional, beautiful, and valuable parts of all. And this is not only true for objects, but also in real life, with me and everyone else. 

The things that used to make me feel awful were really the parts that taught me the most.

 

物件中最具功能性或關鍵性的部位,常常因為安全或美觀被掩蓋,就像是生命中許多痛苦,當下想掩飾或逃避。可其實那些痛苦,才是真正教導我們的部分。我們忽略痛苦本身的價值,就像忽略那些隱藏的功能件一般。

 

「隱藏的真實」重新設計物件本身,將那些被隱藏的功能件,從配角變成主角,讓人重新正視他們的價值與功能。

首先,拆解了生活中常見的燈具。燈具裡,最具功能性與關鍵性的部位就屬燈泡與電線了,然而這兩者往往被隱藏在造型之後。燈泡隨著時間演進成 LED,而電線真正作用的是裡頭的金屬(通常為銅線),這兩個配角便是作品的主角。

My project is using only the simplest functional parts to reach a gorgeous effect.
That’s the contrast I want to play with.
I choose copper wires, resistances and LED’s as my leading characters.

The final object has the typical dome shape of lamp, but this dome shell is the lighting source itself. Copper wires and LEDs are shown in a delicate way in order to give the lighting device a totally different definition. The hidden functional parts now shine like stars.

I combined traditional bobbin lace making with copper wires,
LED's, and resistances to complete the hole circuit.

 


為了做出保有功能但又具有裝飾性的銅線,

學習了一種傳統的荷蘭工藝(kantklossen),一種傳統運用紡錘編織蕾絲的技術。

再將 LED 與電阻焊在織好的電路上,封在兩層雹殼 e-poxy中,成為一個大型吊燈。燈罩也從過去的反光,變成給光。如此一來以往屈居幕後的 LED、電阻、銅線,頓時躍上檯面,成為燈的主角。

「隱藏的真實」結合了傳統工藝,配合設計與造型,觀者站在燈下往上看時,便能細細品味燈裡的細節,看見這些隱藏物件的美麗與價值。
