Facaro Tonic Chandelier
The CONNECT series consists of multiple, functional sculptures in the form of traditional chandeliers yet made of recycled bicycle parts.
This developing body of work draws inspiration from the aesthetics of victorian era chandeliers, DIY and Bike Culture, and follows an art tradition of utilizing non artistic materials for sculpture.
These Subversive objects challenge the aesthetics of wealth by visually contrasting the classic elegance of the candelabrum with the newfound elegance of discarded, mechanical bicycle parts. Also, as objects made from existing materials they challenge the necessity of the new.
