I created artistic modern lighting for a private event held in a commercial space in Los Angeles. The event needed to feel intimate, yet grand. The idea I settled on was lantern-like-fluffy-globes completely made out of various types of paper & layering techniques. The exterior was made out of hundreds of folded white commercial coffee filters. Yes, you read that right; coffee filters. I think the lighting turned out really great. I was even happier that they are more environmentally friendly than other elegant lighting options on the market today. This is the direction I am currently pursuing right now. Commissions, sculptures & art pieces that are sensitive to the environment & the beings that inhabit it.
The first picture is a close up of the light turned on, the second is a picture of them on the delivery truck.
The work found a happy home after the event was over. I’m so glad that the lights didn’t end up being retired after only one day of use for the event. So from start to finish I would say that this was an eco-friendly project & a success!
