As the saying goes, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” The talented artists, behind the works you’re about to see, view the world differently. They see incredible possibility in the junk we blindly throw away on a daily basis. Not only do they contribute art for us, but to the world itself. Thanks to the integration of recyclable items, their artwork actually spares items that would end up in the landfill.
Sometimes I get depressed about how we’re treating this Planet. We constantly contribute to the ongoing pollution by dumping non-biodegradable waste and toxic chemicals. This lazy approach can’t be good for our future generations. I’m sure people in 3013 will think that we were a bunch of uneducated and uninformed idiots trashing the planet like it was our frat house basement. Many people want to use the “everybody else is doing it,” and “I can’t make a difference anyway” excuses. But quite frankly that’s a bunch of BS. Doing something about the problems our world faces, instead of tuning out, shows character.
I’m constantly amazed by brilliant minds that spend their valuable time bringing joy in the form of art to others. Seeing creative individuals reusing, restoring, recycling, and repurposing things for a greater good gives me hope. If all the junk was converted into art, the entire world would be a huge art museum. Enjoy!
