Awesome caged chandelier light in the foyer of my workplace.
A design of opposites.
Chains and their shadows cast by luminescence.
This seems to be some sort of interior design thing at the moment, but to me it symbolises the great universal struggle.
Truth and freedom versus lies and subjugation .
It probably is just a light , Andy ,I tell myself – but I will climb the stairs to the office and deal with the legal problems besetting our clients and which are small examples of the big struggle.
And it will be time to try to shine a little light on things…
Lots of contrasts and signifiers in this image for me.
The vintage gothic stylings of the chandelier against the modern florescent lighting behind it.Complexity and simplicity juxtaposed.
Dark and light – the candle bulbs at the end of the twisting ,intricate arms of the lamp. Light at the end of our labyrinthine paths.
The chain the chandelier is suspended from.The birdlike ornaments dangling from it. Connection of all things.
The bars of the modern light, like an illuminated prison window. Hope provides brightness.
Light. Connection. Hope.
Those are some of the simple things that get us through this complex life…
