Carolina Fontoura Alzaga - “Connect 19b”

Los Angeles-based artist Carolina Fontoura Alzaga, aka Facaro, created an entire series of work called CONNECT, in which she uses bike parts to build a variety of chandeliers. Each features cascading bike chains that are attached to wheels to look like traditional light fixtures. She leaves the bike chains relatively untouched without adding a finish, only degreasing them by hand. The idea behind her CONNECT series of chandeliers was to find beauty in discarded objects and to challenge the idea that new things are necessary.
