Recycling: chandeliers

I'm a BIG fan of recycling & reusing. There is so many possibilities to create new object from old / already used material. I was blown away when I saw this chandeliers made from recycled bicycle parts - chains inspired by old victorian era style. They are made by artist Carolina Fontoura Alzaga.

"This series addresses class codes, power dynamics, reclaimed agency, and ecological responsibility. The traditional chandelier is seen as a bourgeois commodity, a cachet of affluence, excess, and as such power. The recycled bicycle parts become a representation of the dismissed, invisible, and powerless, but also an affirmation of self-propelled movement. The bicycle chandelier thereby creates a new third meaning of reclaimed agency."
