The nature of the ‘Crystal Automata’ mechanisms is cyclical –without beginning or end, they run in continuous movement for eternity. In ‘Crystal Automata’, the movement of light is set in motion, forever changing but never ceasing; it brings the concept of the chandelier with its unique sparkling properties with it, through the ages, and into our contemporary present.
There are inherent connections between chandeliers and automata. Chandeliers are often used to receive and inspire guests, in the past, automata were also used to instil wonder in visitors or viewers via a practical device. The combination of chandeliers and automata doubles, at least, visual wonder and fascination, and leads visitors, thanks to nine pairs of wings made of frosted crystal, through a crystal wonderland.
