Art de Trash?

We are very much aware of recycling’s benefits when it comes to the planet, but what about how it can enrich us spiritually and artistically? It might sound odd—after all, trash is trash—but while most people see the act of recycling as a weekly or daily chore, these seven artists view it as a platform of discovery, expression and yes, even love.

From cello-playing dumpster divers to eclectic jewelry designers and surfboard creators, these seven videos might just inspire you to look at trash and reuse in a whole new way.

It took me a bit of time to figure out how to look at this. I had seen the Ladnfillharmonic and Caine's Arcade elsewhere but the rest were fantastic. Truly bring new meaning to the phrase- one's man's trash is another man's treasure.

Thanks.
