Hesitance to invest in a permanently affixed dining light fixture opened the opportunity to think about a movable installation of a unique art commission as a more valuable, more long-lasting investment in their notion of “Migrant Home”, the title of the piece. Consisting of almost 100 hand blown glass spheres suspended from 7 different colors of monofilament that would catch the natural and artificial light existing in the space, “Migrant Home” is designed to adjust volumetrically to new spaces as the family moves.
