A creative designer Anke Weiss recylced the used food and drink packaging to create a series of beautiful lights. Weiss traces the patterns and text on the packaging with hundreds of pin-pricks, and put a bulb inside the packaging to shine through. Very simple light designs but the effect is great!
The packaging lights show the transformation of a mass-product into aunique item. Through individual adaptation, the packaging of products like juice, cookies or soap gain a new purpose. The packaging (the purpose of which is to support the sale of its contents) becomes a product itself. It survives the point where it usually turns into garbage.
