Remember picking up random objects from the side of the road as a kid and being scolded for it, forced to let the treasure go? Here’s a chance to get creative with everyday objects (read: trash). The following examples show that beauty is in everything, even trash, and that amazing things can be designed out of it if we put our minds to it.
This igloo seems to be made mainly out of newspapers, paper cups and plastic sheets, creating a surprisingly homogenous white-to-pastel colour scheme. This project was contributed by artist David Hamlow and others at the Art Shanty Projects 2006. This annual, 5-week public art installation uses a frozen lake as an open-air gallery.
