Carolina Fontoura Alzaga  makes painstakingly intricate chandelier sculptures and lighting fixtures from bicycle parts that she salvages from scrap metal yards and bicycle shop dumpsters all around Los Angeles. In making this profile, I was struck by how her social and political consciousness are woven into her life and work.

Beautifully lighting pieces made of recycled bike parts. I love this trend of up cycling to make light.
