"clump of cells" in progress

Clump of Cells is a work in progress. I made the prototype last week and my "intern" worked on these last night. I'm contemplating how to hang these sculptures, on the wall or from the ceiling. Since they are translucent, light is very important to their placement. I am going to try to fabricate a clear plexiglass bracket to have them attached to the wall but float about 6 inches away from it. I'm not sure if I am going to hard wire them so they give off light or just focus pinpoint gallery lighting on them to cast shadows.

This is my little part in the project 100 POSSIBILITIES. Explanation from the website...

"In honor of CAA’s Centennial, the artist Sheryl Oring asked 2012 Annual Conference attendees a single question: What is the role of the artist?
Over the course of a two-day performance in Los Angeles, Oring posed the question to her visitors and transcribed their answers verbatim onto note cards using a manual typewriter, with a goal of collecting one hundred answers. Hence the title of her work, 100 Possibilities. Collectively, these answers will paint a portrait of academic views about the role of the artist as CAA enters its second century as a professional organization.
Oring’s performance took place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from 1:00 to 5:00 PM on Wednesday, February 22, and Thursday, February 23, 2012—or until she received her one hundred answers."
