Chandeliers define the opulence and luxury of lighting a large space. Viewed at a distance, like from the floor at twelve feet beneath the chandelier, you may not notice that said chandelier is made from tampons, cheap disposable pens, stir sticks, or even Gummi bears. So look closely the next time you are awestruck by a chandelier--it may be just made from some found material.
Implications - In this increasingly eco-conscious world, products made from recyclable goods spark a great deal of buzz and consumer interest. Disposing of these goods when they have the potential to serve both practical and aesthetic purposes is highly frowned upon, and consumers appreciate artists and companies who put these uses into practice.
