Glowstick 1, 2016

David Batchelor creates sculptural installations out of found objects. Scouring thrift stores, markets, and city streets, Batchelor gathers mass-produced items, disused domestic objects, and scrap industrial materials which he repurposes to create colourful, often luminous, structures and forms. Glowstick 1 is made from a group of overlapping frames within which are set ten different LED light circuits. Each frame is programmed to emit a single colour light, and combined together they interact and blend to produce a rainbow spectrum of merging colours.
