This partner project is based on the principle of creating innovative designs from recycled, reused, or repurposed materials.
We found a large stack of unused air conditioning filters for sale at 50 cents a piece in varying sizes at a material resell store. The qualities that drew us to the filters were their depth, density, strength and weight. Though originally designed as an air filter, we chose to repurpose them as visual filters.
We found different shades of blue glass objects at another resell store and broke them into little pieces. These were then placed into the filter in a gradient pattern to provide additional layers of depth and light reflectivity. To stabilize the assembly, the filter with the inserted glass pieces was cast in resin.
