~ Maxhedron, Bec Brittain

I have featured the Shy light by Bec Brittain in a previous post, but it seems that once is not enough. Making it's debut is the Maxhedron light, another with a strong geometric form, this time solid & dealing with the idea of reflection & transformation, once the light is turned on. Made of mirrored glass it can reflect it's surroundings, looking jewel like once the light is on.











'Maxhedron is a study in material transformation through light and reflection. When Maxhedron is turned off, its mirrored surface gives it a mercurial quality, being at one present yet disappearing as it reflects its surroundings. The second phase of transformation occurs when Maxhedron is turned on -- what was a solid surface becomes translucent, and the lights become a constellation of points. Maxhedron contrasts rigid formal language with mutable material qualities for a very dynamic lighting piece.'
