Bicycle Chandeliers

Mexican-Brazilian artist, Carolina Fontoura Alzaga’s Connect collection is a series of sculptures made from recycled bike parts and other, typically, “unartistic” materials.  The sculptures were inspired by Victorian-era chandeliers and the DIY and bike cultures.

Alzaga’s work challenges the traditional aesthetics of wealth by contrasting the classical elegance of a Victorian chandelier with the overlooked beauty of abandoned bicycle parts.

Inspired by Lost At E Minor.
