Winding Light Installations Made from Plastic Buckets
Using ingenuity and superior craftsmanship Brooklyn-based artist Jason Peters creates glowing light installations consisting of plastic buckets strung together in snake-like formations. Transforming discarded items into unexpected works of art has been Peters' artistic mission since graduating from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Peters says of his work, "By using large multiples of discarded items in repeating designs that establish unexpected patterns, societal cast offs are made beautiful through the alliteration of form. Once removed from their traditional context, the objects' interaction with the environment becomes unpredictable and unstable."
