Selector Statement

In The Lucent Parlor Chapter 1, threads of brilliant molten glass re-enact the flicker of candlelight as they are unwound (and ultimately wound) around the body of a 19th-century chandelier. By replacing the chandelier’s native candlelight with the glow of molten glass, Pexa evokes the feeling of the past while maintaining its unknowable otherness.
