Parapillar by  David Campbell

“When I make works from light boxes (such as Brick Lane Remix, 2003), or old plastic bottles with lights inside, I hope the illumination suspends their objecthood to some degree and makes the viewer see them a little differently – see them as colours before seeing them as objects.” The brightest possible palette fills the range of neon-lit columns, modular crates, spherical shapes, and unlit clusters (such as Parapillar, 2006), the artist’s “vehicles for colour.” David Campbell


Upcycled art


This work is by the Scottish artist David Batchelor. This  plastic bottle installation is called the Candela 7/450 (For the Death Star) by the Scottish artist David Batchelor. it uses 450 upcycled household bottles, each containing a low energy light bulb. It looks so beautiful! It was hanging in the temperature palm house at the Royal Botanic gardens in Edinburgh., Scotland.

Recycled Records

Miss Lucy is a bit of a Magpie, i like to collect lots of different things, particularly art.  One of my favourite pieces of art in my house are my recycled records by the artist Aimee Gruar, i have 2 of these at the entrance to my house and they are amazing!

I adore the artist Paul Villinski, his works using recycled records are beautiful and inspiring:

I love Paul Villinski’s quote when he says  “Butterflies seem impossible. How can these ridiculously delicate creatures, apparently blown about by the merest breath of wind, actually fly many thousands of miles to migrate? How is it that an innate, intergenerational GPS guides them year after year to the same tree? Are we more like them than we suspect, or could we be?”
