Cinergy

Cinergy: Black Holes, 2014
Fiberoptic internet cable, steel, cable ties, and ratchet tie downs

Science fiction and diagrams of black holes and wormholes in space influenced the designs for Cinergy: Black Holes. The primary medium in this sculpture is salvaged cut-off pieces of fiber optic cable.  This post-consumer waste cannot be spliced and thus longer be used for its intended purpose of carrying data.  As the black holes of internet cable connect across each opening, the open sides reveal the labor of construction and fabrication of cut wires and cable ties that hold the portals together.
