‘FLUOLESS’ is an experiment to create a large crystal structure from a huge amount of used fluorescent lights. FLUOLESS PROJECT: Do you know the annual amount of discarded fluorescent lights? It is about 4 hundred millions. 75,000 tons by weight of used fluorescent lights are thrown away as garbage in Japan. And 85% of them are thrown into the sea for reclamation of the waterfront even if it contains gaseous mercury. At the same time, fluorescent lights are very difficult to be recycled. Because it contains various materials that are toxic, therefore it is very difficult to recycle it into a fine and pure material. We don’t see the discarded fluorescent lights with our own eyes. Once we throw them away, we easily forget about them.
