Illuminate, knitted lights

Illuminate is a concept pieces in the form of a knitted light.
Made from a combination of foil yarn, jelly-cord, fine wire and glow yarn using manual machine knitting and hand crochet. This piece has a battery powered light source at the top to illuminate the light by night and when the light is off it emits light by glowing. The inspiration behind this piece was bioluminescent, which is the production and emission of light by a living organism.
