Mumbai, : Mumbaikars walked into & clicked selfies inside the wind chime which was over 25 feet tall and over 5 feet wide and experience sounds from the wind chime. The art piece by B4U Music was at first installed at Bombay Exhibition Centre, NESCO by renowned artist ‘Al QawiTazalNanavati’ to create the World’s Tallest and Largest Wind Chime made from upcycled playing cards. But now, the installation has already seen interest from malls and public spaces like railway stations which are eager to have it displayed in their spaces for the common man. The art installation of B4U’s Wind Chime made of playing cards has started travelling to multiple venues. After a successful showcase at NESCO appreciated by thousands, now the Railways too have shown keen interest in displaying this “upcycled playing card” installation so that Andheri’s 1.3 million/13 lac daily visitors “the common man” can get inspired by our art and start recycling waste. The display is there for 16 days. This also supports the cause of Swachh Bharat.
Around 20 million visitors are expected in the next 2 weeks who are going to catch a glimpse of the “World’s Largest and Tallest Wind Chime made of playing cards” at Andheri West Booking Office – Upper Deck!
The primary material used for the installation consists of over 5000 playing cards which were taken from B4U’s stock and upcycled to create a huge structure & art installation hanging from the ceiling. Besides, there were ghungroos added to give a musical feel and paper clips which were used to hold the structure together. The wind chime had 2 rings, first one of 3.5 feet covered by a 5 ft external ring of playing cards to give a depth while the viewers experience the wind chime.
Till date the world’s largest wind chime installation was in Illinois made of metallic tubes suspended 49 ft from the ground. However, B4U’s installation is made of upcycled playing cards and is the largest playing card wind chime created till date.
B4U music,a leader in the Hindi Music genre wanted to create this experience for its audiences to spread awareness about recycling/upcycling and demonstrate how beautiful art pieces can be made from redundant waste keeping in mind the Swachh Bharat Mission.
