Like a futuristic arabesque, the circuit spreads on the wall with tiny colored drops fighting gently against gravity.

 

“The last half year I have been traveling and thinking about how to combine some of my sculpture and painting ideas into new works for Camp Design Gallery.  The show has been planned for mid-Fall, which is the time of year I need extra light for the months ahead.  So I decided to concentrate in these lights I've focused on what's extra in my artwork; and on how atmospheric lighting is extra.  Most of the electrical work was done in Mantyluoto Finland during the summer, and has been brought down to the gallery to assemble and finish here in Milan”, says the artist.

 

The research of David, with the assistance of Espen Strandhagen and Hans Hubach, has been finalized with a serie of lamps, composed of many small LED bulbs, customized with layers of transparent resin.  In each work there is a different network of brass framing; coated with resin to insulate it and give another color.  The networks' system is the electrical conductor, structure, and the compositional element at the same time.
