Tide Chandelier by Stuart Haygarth
Stuart Haygarth's Chandeliers are as powerful to me as any of the environmental artist, Andy Goldsworthy. Goldsworthy makes simple forms from natural material that, often times, have arrived on the shores of our beaches. Stuart Haygarth uses the UN-natural material that arrives on our beaches. And he turns them into lamps with an indescribable luminosity. This work, the Tide Chandelier, brings recycling art to a higher level by making cycles of cycles.
Implications - Consumers are looking for innovative ways to recycle in response to the recent insurgence of environmental studies in mainstream media. By reducing their personal carbon footprints, consumers feel validated from their active involvement in green initiatives. Corporations looking to appeal to environmentally conscious consumers should consider using green initiatives in company operations and products.
