I have been around electronics and wires for as long as I can remember. Every once in a while we used to have excess wires which have some random issues with them (too short to be used, burnt insulation, etc) because of which they get discarded and just are stored in bulk in one corner. For my up-cycling project, I have decided to use these left out, ignored, wires and come up with a sculpture design using them. Being an engineer, it will be interesting to explore this form of an electrical wire. I plan to strip off all the insulation to keep the bare metallic look and braid them to fit the design. Below are some braided/ twisted wire art examples, which, I shall be using as inspiration to come up with my own interpretation of using electrical wire. The aesthetic I wish to portray could be called metallic/ wire art.
