I find it amusing that I am currently putting a piece together specifically for a show that is geared towards reusing and recycling…or “upcycling” as the artsy types call it.
Almost all of my pieces are created from reused/recycled/found objects and materials anyway so it really isn’t a far stretch to aim for a deadline date and a particular venue. We, as a society, have manufactured so much stuff and now are left to ponder what to do with it all…and short of tossing things into our ever bulging landfills, it seems there should be a way to utilize discarded materials better than we do. Have seen a lot of cardboard furniture, not only very utilitarian but pleasing to the eye and very environmentally kind.
So, back to work…have 4 days to complete this piece!
