Old Bike Parts Turned Into Impressive Chandeliers

Artists Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock transformed old bike parts into six spectacular chandeliers, and hung them in the underpass of Theo/Malone and IH-35 San Antonio, Texas. ‘Ballroom Luminoso’ chandeliers contain a custom-made LED light installation, which turned the space into a magnificent shadow theater and a new spot for people to enjoy some public art. The bike parts create intricate shadow patterns and make the underpass look truly surreal.

‘Ballroom Luminoso’ globes also contain small medallions, which are designed to reflect “on the community’s agricultural history, strong Hispanic heritage, and burgeoning environmental movement“, as explained by the artists. The project of bringing this urban space on the public art map was carried out by the San Antonio City’s Department for Culture and Creative Development. “By incorporating public art into the most accessible places, we are bringing our community together and creating an inviting neighborhood for our residents and for other members of our city,” said representatives of the Council.

This definitely brings more color the city! What do you think?
