If tangled wires are actually pieces of art, I’ve been creating bundles of cultural significance for decades now. I will gladly sell the heap of tangled mess which I am staring at right now. It’s just sitting here being all artsy and stuff right next to my desk anyway. Let the bidding commence.
While you’re all fighting over my masterpiece, allow me to introduce you to a piece of art which is slightly less full of shit. The Tangle Lamp made by ceramicist Jo Davies and photographer Matthew Booth integrates a wad of tangled cabling (which just so happen to be in active, so don’t worry about any electrical “mishaps”) right into the actual fixture. the result is supposed to represent the ultimate cable management system and is probably supposed to reflect the angst of the human condition… or something like that.
