Stick to the old rule of thumb “reduce, reuse, recycle” and you just may end up making some cool art! These gorgeous chandeliers were customized and created by artistic duo Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock. The pair created six chandeliers in total, each one almost entirely made out of used bike parts.
What makes their work even more impressive, is their location of choice for the installation of the chandeliers. They chose to hang them beneath an underpass in San Antonio, Texas — the perfect urban spot to compliment their industrial look, and for the community to enjoy the public art display. At night, the chandeliers are illuminated with LED lights, and the bike parts illuminate the entire space with their patterned shadows. We think the results are absolutely beautiful!

Who would think that masking tape could be art? Well, art director and graphic designer Koji Iyama has made it just that. With his new installations across Japan, the latest arriving in the city of Sendai, Iyama has certainly been leaving his colorful mark.
His product of choice? Mt-masking tape. His setting of choice? Old warehouses with high ceilings create the perfect space for him to hang the rolls of tape. He covers the entire floor as well, and even proceeds to cover any objects in his way — bikes, tables, other installations. The result of his final design is pretty cool, and we can imagine very interactive for the people lucky enough to visit his presentations. What do you think of Iyama’s art ventures?
