TITLE OF WORK
Home/Body Chandelier by Marco Piscitelli
ABOUT THE WORK
This is the first object in a series which examines the continued persistence of the “home gym.” Anticipating futures of communal living and the liberatory potential for dense, overlapping programs within the domestic space, Home/Body references the forms of bodybuilding equipment and the materiality of the gym-as-institution. The chandelier utilizes and celebrates ubiquitous but rarely exposed circular fluorescent lamps by means of custom-designed, 3D printed fixtures which conceal the ballasts and sockets.
Steel, printed nylon plastic, paint, polyester, T9 fluorescent lamps.
