Fragile Future III: Delicate Dandelion Lights Sit at the Intersection of Nature & Technology
Posted By Bridgette Meinhold On December 29, 2011 @ 9:15 am In gallery,Green Lighting | No Comments
Studio DRIFT is currently exhibiting one of their installations at the Israel Museum  as part of the Curious Minds Exhibit . Fragile Future III  “tells the story about the amalgamation of nature and technology,” and how the two must work in consort in order to survive. The linear, 3 dimensional network is both industrial and organic and while the unit is wholly constructed it speaks to how nature can collaborate with man-made objects.
This third iteration in the series (after Fragile Future I and II) is a more robust design and is easier to install and maintain. Each modular network is a visible circuit and comes with three lights made from real dandelions. The modules easily connect to each other allowing a number of different configurations to be made. You can order your own versions of the lights through Carpenter’s Workshop Gallery .
