Art is not what you see, but what you make others see


Michal Maciej Bartosik has created two new floating compression lights that are based on two of Kenneth Snelson‘s sculptures:  ‘Needle Tower’ and ‘City Boots’.
Utilizing Snelson’s structural discovery, appropriated and popularized by Buckminster Fuller as “Tensegrity,” Bartosik proposes new possibilities of light forms, whereby the light source and its electrical wire work mutually in compression and tension to produce a seemingly discontinuous field of light defined by it structural form.wpid-needle-detail-2-2011-04-4-01-12.jpgwpid-needle-detail-1-2011-04-4-01-12.jpgwpid-needle-1-2011-04-4-01-12.jpgwpid-cityboots-detail-2011-04-4-01-12.jpg
