Stalaglite

Stalaglite was commissioned as part of The Lighting The Way. I was one of four local artists commissioned to develop new artwork for installation alongside the main Light Up Leicester programme.

This artwork was developed using a large amount of recycled materials (namely glass bottles of all shapes and sizes). By breathing new life into these waste products and transforming them into something new and exciting, we can see new ways in which we can repurpose our everyday waste and reduce our ecological footprint.

The glass elements are arranged, as if they are some heretofore undiscovered alien growth rising out of the surface of the artwork like stalagmites. The lighted elements working to accentuate their forms, providing a sense of depth and clarity.
