Add hickeys until you can hang a box like this from it. Grind off the tabs if you don't like them, paint it to match the ceiling. You will probably need a bushing to make the connection from the last hickey to the new box. Having pulled the wires through the hickeys, install the relay. Add a cross bar to hang more hickeys, from which you hang the light. ...
