We came across this project and thought it was great; both in terms of it’s humble origins and also the combined (and multi-combination) effects of all those different colours, materials and contents. Some are beautiful, some powerful, and some are downright freaky. There are many many excellent pictures here on the project’s Flickr site, or more information about the project here.
The LOOZA Bottle Project is a collaborative art installation where throwaway materials are re-purposed. The project spotlights consumption habits, and the democratic concept of the creativity inherent in all. LOOZA collaborators respond to the geometry of the glass vessel form filling it uniquely with the most humble of materials. The 372 bottles ended up being many different things: rhythmic, colorful, patterned, layered, sparkly, humorous, compassionate, obsessive, homage, structural, engineered, etc.
