Lighted Sculpture: Shadow

For my second Light Sculpture project I got super excited about the potential of lichen for weaving and soft filtered light.

Yeah, that is a $3 ikea desk lamp decorated with lichen macrame. I was excited about the column of illuminate lichen I imagined and wanted to conceal the black lamp with lichen so it just kind of happened. Then, from exactly the same components plus also a stick, I made a shadow sculpture that I am at least not ashamed of.
See I unscrewed the top part of the metal stick and wedged in a wooden stick that i bent with a giant plastic twist tie.

Here is a straight side view.
