In the CONNECT Series, Caro reimagines used bike parts to create luxurious, cascading, and seemingly traditional chandeliers. The pieces stem from Caro's interest in exploring the third function of materials - after their original function, after they become trash, when they are transformed into something new altogether – effectively reclaiming the ‘discarded’ and ‘invisible’ to create something far more powerful and commanding.
The CONNECT Series chandeliers draw inspiration from Victorian and modern chandeliers, bike culture, and a dedication to principles of sustainability. In her art and her life, Caro works to find beauty in the discarded, and challenges the necessity for the new.
Caro is based in Los Angeles, California, where she produces art and pieces for the CONNECT Series in her downtown studio.
