Party Popper Chandelier- 12.17.07

popperchan.jpgIn getting ready for another new year (Yay! 2008! I have no idea why i’m so excited for this one.) ~ just rediscovered this party popper chandelier by Stuart Haygarth, who collected up 1000 exploded party poppers on 01.01.00 after the MIllenium celebrations in London. Each popper is individually hung, and apparently create quite the organic swarm when hit (be it by a breeze or a bat). If he seems familiar, perhaps you’ve also seen some of his other found object chandeliers… like the one out of sun glasses? (images below!)

Here is the 2006 piece Spectacle ~ “created from 1020 pairs of prescription spectacles which are linked together to resemble a traditional tiered chandelier. By using prescriptive spectacles which were once an essential tool for seeing an interesting analogous line is drawn between their old and new purposes. A mirror ball light effect is produced as the light is refracted through the several layers of lenses.”

It’s great to see how single-use/unwanted objects can be recycled to create something so visually intriguing and beautiful!

Thank u Stuart and Jean!
