Light Rings began as an exploration of alternative methods to plastic bottle upcycling beyond conventional recycling methods. By relooking at the ways in which one can manipulate the physical form of the plastic bottle instead of melting it, the project seeks to alter one’s perception of cheap disposable plastic by converting it into a ‘new’ material and form through shredding, forming a continuous plastic thread and creating an elegant series of modular lights that highlight the transparent and ephemeral quality of the plastic with prototyping technology. A myriad of configurations is achievable owing to the modular nature of the design.
