Before you throw anything away, really think about it. For example, if you’ve finished burning a candle that comes in a big glass jar, don’t waste it. Instead, drain out the leftover wax and use it as storage. This is called “upcycling.” Upcycling is “the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.”
French artist Gilles Cenazandotti creates incredible animal sculptures from plastic debris lost at sea and found by the artist on beaches. This series, “Future Bestiary,” explores environmental struggles including evolution, over-consumption, the challenge of nature and resources, and the destruction of species.
If you can overcome the sacrilege of carving up big, heavy reference books, Guy Laramee's paper and binding sculptures are nothing short of stunning. He transforms heavy tomes into mountains, waves, and rock-face monuments.
