Tide Chandelier: Picked Up On The Beach


We have been working on a piece to be called "There is no such thing as garbage"- that if we are careful, everything that we normally throw out can be left at the store, recycled, re-used, reimagined or composted. Our centerpiece will be Stewart Hagarth's Tide Chandelier, " part of a larger body of work based on the collection of ' man made' debris washed up on a specific stretch of Kent coastline. I have been collecting material over many years and the work is still in progress....The Tide chandelier is created from clear and translucent objects, primarily made of plastic. Each object is different in shape and form, yet they come together to produce one sphere. The sphere is an analogy for the moon which effects the tides which in turn wash up the debris."


The objects hang on monofilament line held by 'split shot' from a 1.5 metre square MDF platform above. The light source is a 100w incandescent bulb. ::Stuart Haygarth via ::MocoLoco
