Spectacle art

This is a beautiful piece by Stuart Haygrath.

Spectacle is created from 1020 pairs of prescription spectacles which are linked together to resemble a traditional tiered chandelier. By using prescriptive spectacles which were once an essential tool for seeing an interesting analogous line is drawn between their old and new purposes. A mirror ball light effect is produced as the light is refracted through the several layers of lenses.

I like Haygarth’s work because he takes everyday objects and turns them into magical light sculptures. They cause me to step back and look at materials in a different way. Go to his site to check the many other pieces he created out of found objects like disposable wine glasses, man made debris from the shore, and more. http://www.stuarthaygarth.com/default.asp?V_DOC_ID=1063
