Some people find elevated freeways, and in particular the underpass created by the freeway, to be a real eyesore, but what can anybody do to spruce up such a sterile concrete environment?
San Antonio based artists Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock have come up with an illuminating idea- turn recycled bicycle parts into chandeliers. Their project is called Ballroom Luminoso, and the effect created by the LED lit chandeliers really brings a touch of class to that drab underpass.
But will a set of cool and colorful bike part chandeliers be enough to get people together under the freeway? Or will they simply shed light on a roadside problem which is usually kept in the dark?
