Whatever you call it, creative eco-design, Trashion, aesthetic re-junking (my personal favourite), Junk-art is here to stay!
CultCase has provided a great collection of concepts in their article here.
It seems that recycled art is turning into a natural descendant of the formerly radical "found art". When I look at some of these pictures from cult case, I can't help thinking of that episode of The Simpsons where Homer decides to create "modern art" by sticking a bunch of shovels and rakes into semi-dried cement. Of course, the artists featured on CultCase are doing much much better than our dear Homer!
"Vacuum cleaner Forest" is most certainly my favourite from this article. Whats yours?
**Don't forget!! ArtsJunktion is now closed on Saturdays until the fall!
