Authentic Venetian Chandelier
3D Printed PLA, LED's
Authentic Venetian Chandelier is a 3D printed knock-off of an ornate Venetian chandelier, stolen from the collection of the Murano Glass Museum, Italy.
Using 3D scanning technology, it was possible to record a decimated copy of the original chandelier despite suspicion from museum invigilators. Reproduced at full scale, the chandelier is constructed from over 250 unique parts, taking over 1000 hours to 3D print.
A meditation on the perceived value of museum objects, it takes on the absurd notion that through piracy, one can own priceless objects.
