The Tide chandelier is created from clear and translucent objects of all colours, primarily made of plastic, states Stuart Haygarth on his website Stuarthaygarth.com. Each individual element is different in shape and form, yet they come together to produce one perfect sphere. The sphere evokes the shape of the moon whose force created the tide that washed these items ashore. This spherical display of objects could be seen as a celebration of modern manufacturing or a negative display of waste carelessly disposed of in the sea. Both interpretations have a link to human behaviour.
