Fragments of Light | Andrew Smith, 2008
Fragments of Light functions as an indoor lamp. Although it looks like there is water within this piece, it is really a solid 8 inch diameter clear acrylic cylinder. The outside of the cylinder has been crackled with thousands of small cracks that capture the light within the cylinder causing it to glow. The bottom of the sculpture houses a halogen bulb with a color wheel that slowly changes the color of the light. In addition to an (on off) switch there is a second switch that stops the color wheel, allowing the lamp to stay in a solid color state. The color of the lamp cycles through red, blue, green, and yellow.
