Carolina Fontoura Alzaga has taken the word “recycle” and given it a completely new meaning. Seriously. All of the chandeliers below are produced from old bicycle parts she found at garbage dumps all over Los Angeles. Who knew your old tricycle from 1987 could still serve a purpose?
Check out the below interview with Carolina as she discusses her artwork and the main purpose behind it. I think you’ll come to learn that its more than just dumpster diving and monkey wrenches.
