Wine makes the whole world more beautiful. Seriously, can you argue otherwise, given wine bottle cheese boards, used cork accoutrement — and now, these stunning light boxes from artist Tracey Johnson? They’re made out of used wine crates and a little bit of magic. Can’t tell? Read on.
Johnson creates different installations and spaces depending on the arrangement of the wine crates: towers, rippling waterfalls, shadowy tree-scapes, odd alice-in-wonderlandscapes, all are implied given the simple rearrangement of these craftily cut-out crates. Johnson, I’d like to volunteer my extended family as contributors to your materials supply. Now to tackle the trash created by housemates. Is there anyone interested in making a PBR can chandelier?
