Look again.......





What is art? As our planet is overwhelmed with more and more trash, it is only natural that artists would look again and use it as another medium to create with.
DIY Gadgets blog is a wonderful source for what artists can do with a little trash!

Old reel to reel and cassette tape takes on a new life through these graphic art designs.


The laminated layers in a skateboard are the source for this sculpture...



....and this cute, fuzzy bunny? .......is made from cigarette filters...

As beautiful as a piece of Murano glass, this table top is made from beer caps!



Even the lowly styrofoam cup becomes high end doodle art in the right hands...

You can even buy them on his Etsy store.....

Tom Deininger makes us look again at his image of Marilyn Monroe...please click on his name and watch the video(bar is under the flag) of how this piece is not at all what it seems....everything from syringe needles to plastic dolls make up this illusion.



Artist Yin Xiuzhen creates portable cities from discarded clothing found in the subway, old work shirts, pantyhose and other textiles . 

So, look again ....art is all around you.

So good to see how other artists make us think and see things anew. Love the city scapes.

They're fun and thought-provoking at the same time. I loved the video of the Deininger piece, showing all the parts that made up the whole.

I wasn't familiar with these artists, so thanks for opening my eyes to that!

Bonjour Théresa,
Je suis pour le brassage des peuples des cultures et l'art nous permet de créer un vaste mouvement de vie qui se propage sur toute la planète.Nous sommes une grande famille qui s'ignore et découvrir des univers artistiques tels que le tiens, est un bonheur.
Très beau travail. Bonne continuation.
Je t'envoie toutes mes amitiés de puis la France
