Recycled Art: 66 Masterpieces Made From Junk

Recycled Art: 66 Masterpieces Made From Junk
Ever shocked by the beauty of toilet paper rolls, or saw the chicken formed by the egg shells, or witnessed coolest lion made by tires? Heck, all of them are even made by common things you discarded every day, and they are known as recycled art. (Image Source: Kyle Bean) Recycled art is not something that’s beautiful but just a waste of time and space. It’s like alchemy which turns base metal into gold, except that it turns trashes into gold. Take recycled Optimus Prime with 2.5 meters tall as example, it was sold with 7800 U.S. dollars, sounds like a good price for a combination of metals which were originally treated as trashes. Are they really that beautiful and worth the purchase? Atelier Hapax Workshop Hapax excels in creating gorgeous and unique products by using discarded materials provided by their clients.

Plaster cast A plaster cast is a copy made in plaster of another 3-dimensional form. The original from which the cast is taken may be a sculpture, building, a face, a pregnant belly, a fossil or other remains such as fresh or fossilised footprints – particularly in palaeontology (a track of dinosaur footprints made in this way can be seen outside the Oxford University Museum of Natural History). Sometimes a blank block of plaster itself was carved to produce mock-ups or first drafts of sculptures (usually relief sculptures) that would ultimately be sculpted in stone, by measuring exactly from the cast, for example by using a pointing machine. These are still described as plaster casts. Examples of these by John Flaxman may be found in the central rotunda of the library at University College London, and elsewhere in the University's collections.

Future Shock Term[edit] Toffler argued that society is undergoing an enormous structural change, a revolution from an industrial society to a "super-industrial society". This change overwhelms people. Budget 2014: Government announce plans for self-build revolution Mr Osborne said: “House building is up 23 per cent. But that's not enough. That's why we're making further reforms to our planning system and offering half a billion pounds of finance to small house building firms.” “And it's why we're giving people a new Right to Build their own homes and providing £150 million of finance today to support that,” he added.

Plaster Plaster is a building material used for the protective and/or decorative coating of walls and ceilings and for moulding and casting decorative elements.[1] In English "plaster" usually means a material used for the interiors of buildings, while "render" commonly refers to external applications.[2] Another imprecise term used for the material is stucco, which is also often used for plasterwork that is worked in some way to produce relief decoration, rather than flat surfaces. The most common types of plaster mainly contain either gypsum, lime, or cement,[3] but all work in a similar way. The plaster is manufactured as a dry powder and is mixed with water to form a stiff but workable paste immediately before it is applied to the surface. The reaction with water liberates heat through crystallization and the hydrated plaster then hardens. Forms of plaster have several other uses, for example in medicine plaster orthopedic casts are still often used for supporting broken bones. Types[edit]

6 Textile artists using recycled materials Recycling in art is not a new concept, but practitioners working with textiles seem to be discovering evermore innovative means of harnessing this abundant source of raw materials. The range of textile art being created from recycled or reclaimed goods is testament to the versatility offered by making use of stuff that has had a life already; a life that is often purely functional and as far removed from ‘art’ as you can imagine. The appeal to the textile artist using recycled materials goes much deeper than an easing of their social conscious! The materials being used often have an inherent history, which can offer a powerful starting point and make for a more meaningful process. Collectors and art-lovers will also potentially connect with the finished artwork on a deeper level if they are privy to its story.
