Plot Light

Howdy Peeps! Good day to you all.
Check out this chandelier that I spied on my trip to the MoMA with PVE. Isn’t it wild and don’t you love it? I sure do and can't get it out of my wacky head.


It’s by German designer Ingo Maurer done in 1997. The “Zettel'z is a grand chandelier where the Bohemian crystal drops are substituted by scribbled paper notes from some incurable romantic's desk. The light shines through the paper mobile. In this work Maurer plays with traditional approaches to chandelier manufacture, using precious and semi-precious materials.”


"The truth is found between the lies"



I like to think of it as a great plotting tool. Wouldn’t it be a fun way to plot out a story? You can arrange and rearrange the scenes while letting the light shine through to show you the way. Just be careful to not get burned!

Best,
Kwana

The salon I used to go to in VA had a light very similar to this one!

This is very cool! I'm going to run and go see what scribbled notes I've left on my desk!

That looks like an asweomse DIY project, if you were crafty.

I'm crafty, but also quite lazy.

The plot thickens! I love that and just think of all the possibilities..romance notes mixed with a little light hearted scandal - a bit of humor and deliver it straight to my heart!

Very cool!

I always make writing notes on Post-its that somehow vanish, so this would be a cool office chandelier.

Sheryl said...

Now I'm sad, my notes in in the computer. How can I put one together Hee Hee.

That's way cool! I guess it's a great way to inspire someone to plot. I am SO not a plotter!
