"Hanging by the thread" is an installation showing a common sight with an unusual twist: the wire delivering power to the lit up lightbulb is showing open copper. Not only that, but the wire underwent destruction and is keeping the lightbulb from falling by a single strand of copper wire. The fragile and broken up insulation is inviting spectators to risk the touch. How is the lamp even shining? Can you touch it? Is it supposed to be this way?
