Overall, I estimate that there is less than 50 dollars for all of the materials in the sculpture, including the wiring and the LED's as well as the metal and the glass.
I tried to achieve a balance between the lights inside the sculpture as well as the ambient light in the room. Performing photography of this type of art is very difficult and these pictures do not do justice to this piece at all.
The glass is glued to the steel using silicone sealent. The LED's are fastened to the edge of the glass behind the steel panels. I don't want you to see the individual lights; I just want you to see the light as it interacts with the media that I use.
