Upcycled Art

For today’s Phun Phriday post I want to share a few links with you that I’ve collected in my Phun Phriday Flipboard magazine that show some very unique ways to use unusual materials to create works of art.

First we have the Boeing 777 Jet designed by Luca Iaconi-Stewart out of manila file folders.  I’m thinking, as we move to more and more cloud storage, this young man is really on to something…

Next up, we have these amazing collage paintings made out of miscellaneous objects by Jane Elizabeth Perkins:

Of course, one could always choose more organic materials, like food, as Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves do in their maps of the world:

Or perhaps you might find the geometric shapes of tangram maps by Ryan Arruda more appealing:

And, finally, I don’t like the thought of books not being read, but I think I will make an exception in the case of these remarkable book sculptures by Jodi Harvey-Brown!
