‘life choices’ by rafael gomez
french artist rafael gomez has conceived sculptural installation entitled ‘life choices’, also intended to be lamp. the bouquet of tap-like arms
project letters, which the user is able to control to create a message. the piece was made with recovery materials –
an old modern art approach – using old faucets, lenses from disposable cameras, one-way mirrors, LEDs and iron rods.
‘life choices’ is a symbolic work with the faucets meaningful in that they represent water, a substance essential to life;
the words flowing from them emblematic of our feelings, our choices, our worries, our joys and our sorrows.
the base of the artwork is made up of one-way mirrors – inside them a structure supporting the LEDs and when switched off,
it is able to reflect everything surrounding it.
‘the piece of work was made in order to explore issues, investigations. issues man has about his life or his environment.
to question, to astonish are the targeted aims.’
