This chandelier captures Buck’s vision of a wild cat batting at a kaleidoscope of butterflies. The functional cat skeleton is an impressive example of how Buck’s animated sculptures are able to show motion through his creative assembly.
The double lung perc function of the cat is a feat of engineering as the air enters the cat’s chest travels into the lungs and throughout the upper torso, all the way up to the claw where the cat hangs suspended at the peak of its jump. The removable cat skeleton in combination with the individually lit butterflies, make this lighting installation a luminous conversion piece.
