Artist Christene Selleck, member of the artist collective Art on the Street, created “Wing of Desire”, a steel framed kinetic sculpture using over 3000 reused plastic drinking bottles. Displayed at the Union County Musicfest, this piece employs a unique method in its construction — by splitting the bottles along the sides and nesting them within each other, Selleck was able to achieve a veined, feathered look.

The finished product is sixteen feet long and sits upon a steel framed stand that swivels with the shifting wind, lit with color-changing LED bars by night. Creative reuse of common materials in artwork is not only ecologically friendly, but can positively influence the design of the finished product when one takes advantage of their inherent limitations.mz sept plastics 150x150 Angel Wing Weathervane Made from Plastic Bottles
