Day 155 - Fill-ament [EDIT]

Fil⋅a⋅ment - noun;
1) a very fine thread or threadlike structure; a fiber or fibril: filaments of gold.

The connection to the label follows almost directly from this definition. Inside the bottle is the remnants of an old air filter, I believe from an air conditioner or some other large appliance. The web of tough fibers was cut, ripped, and strung into this bottle which features a compact-fluorescent light-bulb on the label. While designing the first light-bulb, Edison struggled with how to create and shape the filament; all that hard-work seems lost now that filament bulbs as declining in popularity.

Connection is left to the reader,
