Luminous floating rings in London are made from 13,000 recycled plastic bottles

The installation comprises two rings. The first ring is filled with 13,000 recycled plastic bottles retrieved from trash bins and then painstakingly cleaned and capped before use. Luzinterruptus wanted to collect bottles from visitors to fill the second ring, however, they were unable to get enough bottles so they opted to leave the structure illuminated but empty. The installations were put on show at Trafalgar Square from January 14 to January 17, 2016, after which the bottles were reused or turned over to the city’s recycling plants.
