Concrete mortar, wood, acrylic, T9 circular fluorescent light, hardware, cord
A sculptural sconce featuring a sculpted fake rock base made with concrete mortar, circular fluorescent light, and layered acrylic diffusers stylized after shapes found in nature and representations of landscapes – maps, finger lakes, jumbo rocks, desert landscapes, cacti, lizards, and geological forms. The acrylic diffuses the light from the circular fluorescent, creating a soft glow, while still showing the shape of a circle of light.

Nicholas Tilma is a designer and artist based in Detroit, Michigan. Through experimental fabrication techniques and mixing of material languages he creates otherworldly furniture, lighting, and objects that mix references to artificial nature and science fiction to address the following questions: How will humans of the future memorialize the natural world when our references are themselves the fake versions of the real thing? How can we acknowledge our collective fear of a dystopian future, while romanticizing its aesthetic? He has shown work in New York City, Ann Arbor, and Detroit. He is currently attending Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI to pursue his MFA in 3D Design.
