Dazzling Chandelier Made of Old Incandescent Bulbs

The ubiquitous incandescent light bulb  has come a long way since its invention 130 years ago and is now the star of Tim Fishlock’s memorial art piece entitled What Watt? This dazzling chandelier  speaks to the transition away from the widespread use of old school bulbs towards greener, more sustainable alternatives . Talk about a bright idea!
These sparkling lightpieces aren’t just gorgeous to look at — they also send a message to both the unknowing energy-eater and the conscientious energy-preservationist . Constructed using 1,243 suspended retired bulbs, and illuminated at the center by one low-energy fluorescent bulb, each chandelier is a truly stunning example of eco-art .
“It is a memorial and celebration of the humble incandescent bulb” says Fishlock, who anticipates the complete replacement of all forms of incandescent lighting for more energy efficient methods by 2011.
