Metal Assemblage Light Sculptures

I find this kind of art fascinating with a dream-like quality. You have to luv that this stuff didn’t end up in landfills.image

About S. D. Kogan: “Eventually, my designs evolved as I started combining musical instruments with other recycled household or industrial materials. This resulted in more interesting and original art forms.

The kinds of objects that might be combined includes fireplace pots, heat reflectors, balance scale trays, faucets, spigots, spoons, metal wheels, and binoculars, to name only a few. There is a wealth of these sorts of objects in France, and living in Grenoble since 1997 has greatly augmented my artistic vision and its result.

While remaining functional in design, my more recent work (since 2004) would more appropriately be described as “metal assemblage light sculptures”, even though wooden objects (example: violins), and paper (example: musical scores and handwritten contracts), are also incorporated in my work from time to time.”
