Our oceans are not only the habitat of fishes, plants, corals but also have a significant amount of undesirable materials like plastic pieces, rubber fragments, metals and other wastes. Sometimes they remain suspended while at times are washed ashore. We have already seen some jewelry from reclaimed plastic pieces but what we have here are beautiful fishes put together from drift-wood.
Art in the Schools Bench Project inspires students to think about reusing ‘junk’ materials into creative forms, particularly in the shape of a bench. Students are encouraged to take a look at discarded materials around them and draw concepts of one-of-a-kind bench. The concepts are then forwarded to artists who create benches based on the drawings, which are then set as permanent exhibits at the respective schools.
RePly is a concept of using old skateboard decks to build up the high heels of shoes for women. The shape and the material gives an added advantage for re-purposing such wastes, that look beautiful too.
