A collection of lamps made of laser-cut mylar that appear as floating jellyfish. The collection, called ‘Medusae’, was created by designer Roxy Russell in order to “illuminate the growing problem of plastic polluting our oceans”.
Let’s celebrate! 1. We are alive another day 🎉🎉🎉. 2. There are 22 days left until my bday 🎉🎉🎉. 3. I now sell #gold #mylar letter #balloons in the #Etsy shop!! 🎉🎉🎉 Happy Monday!!🎉🎉🎉🎉 (at Studio Mucci Headquarters)
This design from our @cooperhewitt features a rose chafer beetle, magnified and multiplied for your viewing pleasure. These insects can be toxic to birds and your garden, but Don Flood’s 2016 paper gives them an artistic treatment with Mylar, a mirror-like substance that mimics their naturally iridescent bodies.
While the background is an opaque white, the beetles are printed in translucent color that gives the viewer a hint of the shiny Mylar beneath.
