How to turn a dirty past into a bright future?

Shining Forks, an Upcycling Project

Washer drums and dung forks are built for dirty work. But if you look closely, you can discover hidden talents in them.

I’ve always loved to look at an object until it tells me a new story, to repurpose things that have lost their original meaning, to turn old function into new fascination.

The "Shining Forks" are my thank-you to the generous people who donate €5,000 to the charity www.shining-hope.org, which fights for children’s rights.

Until September 2021, they will remain at the ZKM museum in Karlsruhe. After that, one light object could decorate your home! Please follow these instructions if you're interested in one.

If you fall in love with a light object that is already reserved, I offer to rebuild a very similar.
