This light fixture was inspired by the picturesque views of the Hudson valley in Garrison New York and the desire to project something from within a house onto the landscape. The source of light for the living area thus became a site specific installation. Two interlocking cubes are twisted and then rendered as if it were a single line drawing in neon. This architectural chandelier is installed inside a large cubic cupola over the living room. The glass enclosure multiplies the image of the torqued light in many directions. Depending upon the color of the sky the fixture transports it towards the river to hover mysteriously at a great distance.
