Carolina Fontoura Alzaga, a Mexican multidisciplinary artist, takes old bike parts and turns them into shimmering chandeliers. Her series of Victorian-era chandelier sculptures is called “Connect,” and they exemplify how mundane objects can be transformed into magnificent masterpieces! Of the message behind the sculptures, Fontoura Alzaga says “Bourgeois commodity verses the bike as self propelled movement - it’s a metaphor for potentiality.” Regardless of the possible parallels, one thing is absolutely certain: the pieces are beautiful and enlightening works of eco art.
