Title: Please Feel free to pick me up, Wearable Concept Piece
Materials: Glass Bottle, Silver, Silicone, LEDs, Batteries
“In response to thinking about my perception of ‘home’ I decided to pick an object from my coffee table and convert it into a wearable piece.
To encapsulate the theme of home I have chosen an object from my coffee table, a glass bottle, and modified it into a wearable piece. The key component in this work is the human interaction with the object.
I fabricated a silver cap for the bottle with length of fine chain attached. In the neck of the bottle I have set LEDs in a silicone moulds. The LEDs light the bottle when it is picked up by the chain.
The bottle is half filled with water, this helps to magnify the light. The water is also symbolic of Ireland as ‘home’, as I live close a canal which runs through the heart of the city.”
