Art Aviso Artist are collaborating to create a ‘Chandelier’ – an evolving global art installation project, exploring the themes of excess, decadence, overuse, and wastefulness by the collective construction of a ‘chandelier’ made by connecting small three-dimensional artworks into a hanging installation artwork of recycled and repurposed materials, including items from previous Art Aviso projects and Skunk Control’s trash.
