UP CLOSE: Cable by Alastair Philip Wiper – I found this cable when I was poking through the office of Professor Joachim Holbøll, the professor in charge of the High Voltage Laboratory at the Technical University of Denmark, just outside Copenhagen. I was there to photograph the labs, which were built in the early ‘60s and are full of beautiful, huge, old sci-fi-looking equipment. But when I got to the professor’s office I came across three large cabinets filled with all sorts of strange electrical components that he uses when teaching. As with the larger devices in the lab, many of these purely practical devices had an almost sculptural aesthetic that I couldn’t resist, so I ended up paying as much attention to them as to the lab itself.
