Stuart Haygarth's Tide Chandelier
Tide Chandelier ( 2004) by Stuart Haygarth These are photos I saved and squirrelled away a couple years ago and are still high on my list of favourites. I love the accumulation, pattern, colour flow, harmony and just general loveliness.
The Tide Chandelier's part of a series based on the collection of 'man made' debris washed up on the Kent coastline. The Artist collected this debris over the course of many years to create the series of limited edition chandeliers. They're made of clear & translucent objects, primarily of plastic. Each one different in shape and form yet forming a harmonious orb.
Stuart Haygarth's optical chandelier is made of a mass lenses from old and unwanted eyeglasses. Overall, the chandelier measures 1.5 meters and is comprised of 3,000 lenses. Via dezeen
