Human perception of the visual world is limited through the homogeneity of design and the standardization of materials. After constructing a lighting apparatus made of steel and thousands of transparent thread, a small amount of light will be directed onto the apparatus and reflected and refracted multiple times, spreading light over a large area. However, visual perception of the light reflecting and refracting through the apparatus will change according to an observer's location in relation to the apparatus. Ultimately, the goal of this thesis is to engage one's perception of the visual world using properties of transparent materials to maximize the diffusion of light.
