sea/see/saw is a kinetic sculpture by Caitlind R.C. Brown and Wayne Garrett, constructed from 14,000 used eyeglass lenses. The piece was installed on the Pera Museum in Istanbul, and designed to mimmick a shimmering surface. The lenses were all donated by Canadian Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centre (CLERC) which helps visually impaired people around the world. These were lenses they were unable to recycle. To donate glasses in Canada, head over here.
