The Department of Culture and Creative Development of the city of San Antonio has contracted two artists to recycle old bike parts and convert them into beautiful chandeliers. These chandeliers are installed under a bridge, so that anyone can see them easily in the public place.
Artists Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock used old bike parts to make wonderful chandeliers for the city of of San Antonio. Their creations called Ballroom Luminoso contain LEDs that allow to project amazing shadow images on the walls of the bridge where they are displayed. In this way, the Department of Culture and Creative Development of the city hopes to promote art in the city and make it accessible to the a great number of people.
We never thought that our old bikes could be used in such a way! We should also appreciate the the initiative taken by the city of San Francisco that allows everyone to discover works of art for free and in public places. Did you think your bike could be used to create such beautiful things?
