The work started off with a collaboration I was going to do with Dina Fisher for an installation at burning man 2018. Unfortunately, that didn't pan out. Yet I still had the idea of a halos for meditation that I wanted to explore, and ended up making a chandelier for my home instead.
The rings are made of three concentric wooden rings sandwiching an LED strip, with water tubing used as a diffuser. I used circular rig to help drive a router around, and use black string to hang the rings in different angles. Lights are controlled via a remote control.
