Kayt B. found a pile of drawers sans dresser on the street and mounted them to a wall. The result an art installation cum storage facility. 

Lauren Chapman saw light bulbs and thought 'candleholders'. 

And finally...my fave...this puff of a chandelier, created by Tyler Velten, is made of plastic grocery bags draped over 11 watt light bulbs. There's a wire mesh basket around each bulb to keep the bags from coming into contact with them. Extraordinary.
