Light Reading
Book Light

More books are printed every year, read and discarded. Even though many are taken to charity shops, they mostly go unsold and the charities have to pay for the books to be sent to landfill. For example 10,000 books a week from the British Heart Foundation will go to waste. There is currently no infrastructure set up to recycle the paper from books because the paper is low grade and the glue on the spine must be removed.

These wasted books are used to create an attractive chandelier. Every page is folded in half, producing a circular arrangement which hangs around a ceiling light.


Also exhibited: Ditchling Museum, Re-Design Contains in Newcastle, The Geffrye Museum, Light Works at the Marsden Woo gallery, Santorini Biennale and on permanent display at the Wat Tyler Country Park.
