Stainless steel laser cut outs, aluminum hand-spun cylinders, milled shavings, copper circuits -- these are the materials leftover from the manufacturing process. These too are the starting point, even the inspiration for REVISION.
REVISION features New York City-based artists who have worked with materials collected from Edison Price Lighting's Long Island City factory. The artists explored the factory to meet the craftspeople who first cut, bent, spun, burnished, and painted these raw metals to create architectural lighting fixtures. Each artist left the factory with surplus materials to create art of their own.
REVISION 2 explores the inherent and created connections between manufacturing and art. Moreover, it connected the masters of these materials: the artists and the factory craftspeople.
