Jean Shin's Epic Eco Art Made from Recycled Garbage

read
New York artist turns trash into treasure.

Jean Shin is doing her part to combat America's garbage problem, one mindmelting art installation at a time. The Brooklyn-based artist's widely divergent body of work shares a few common traits: it's all highly labor-intensive, it's all made from discarded materials (whether wine bottles, prescription pill bottles, cheap umbrellas, or lottery tickets), and it's all awesome. But Shin's......read more

For pioneering earth artist, landscape is both subject and medium

Richard Long is a trail blazer in more ways than one. The British artist has been at the forefront of the Land Art movement for over forty years.

A British artist stitches recycled paper into cool objects

We recently stumbled on these recycled paper sculptures by Jennifer Collier via a Fast Co. Design post from a few months ago. It's some amazing stuff. The British artist takes found bits of paper, then recycles them into 3D objects by stitching the paper using an ordinary sewing machine.  Collier adds layers of irony by constructing each sculpture from paper that refers to the......read more
