I see beauty in all sorts of odd bits and pieces of everyday life, usually just before I throw them in the garbage, something will catch my eye and that trash gets treasured away for another day.
I have been hoarding a really cool broken lightbulb for a while now, fascinated by its fragility and all the inner workings you never see - just waiting for the right idea to come along. Then a Christmas gift of a book on chalk and charcoal drawing lit the "idea" bulb over my head and I was off...
I’m really pleased with how it came out, with the juxtaposition of subject matter and medium; light and dark; high tech and the most basic materials and the metaphorical fragility of an idea.
Now all I need is a title. Do you have any ideas?
