Stunning Decon Light Made from Discarded Fencing Materials by Kate Rusek
Constructed from discarded fencing materials, Kate Rusek's Decon Lamp is made of LDPE fence slats and waste bailing wire in a combination that reveals a new perspective of these mundane materials. Taking cues from the former companion chain-link fence, the lamp is constructed as a flexible grid. The piece highlights the value in materials that often seem forgettable and disposable. Combined with low-energy LED bulbs, the design engages the disengaged in discussing issues of waste, conservation, and resource use.
