You can’t actually see it in this picture, but these wires attach to a cement pedestal, inside of which the artist Michael Dodge cast 48 batteries that were originally meant to illuminate the LEDs. “It’s called Account Bucket Cosmic Drop, and he made it for the show,” says Thomas. “The batteries have all died but I think that was sort of the point. I’m sure casting them didn’t do them much good either.” In the background is a beaded Nigerian armchair, one of Thomas’s 1stdibs items.
