installation in a swimming pool of a tourist resort,

Island Büyükada, Istanbul, Turkey

 

 

This floating chandelier depicts an ornament taken from Hagia Sophia.

The ornament was rebuilt with empty plastic bottles. In its centre JAK installed

an electric generator that would discharge rhythmically in the water and produce

a spark that made the chandelier glow in at night. The artists made the chandelier

swim in a swimming pool of a tourist resort on Büyükada.
