“Recollect” creates a unique experience combining post-consumer product innovation and sustainability while paying homage to traditional craft methods and the handmade. It offers a dialogue on sustainability, recycling, and conservation. “Recollect” consists of three large-scale star-shaped and circular lanterns (approximately 48” to 60” in diameter) created from discarded 35 mm slides and other e-waste. This piece honors the distinctive cultural tradition from the Philippines, it is inspired by the parol lanterns made from bamboo and paper.
