Tonight I have tried my hand at creating visual art. Our favorite hockey team, the Kansas City Mavericks, and Recycle More have partnered for the second-annual ‘Rejectamenta Restored’ recycled art competition. The goal is to create a piece of art completely from garbage.
As soon as I found out about it, I started stalking the dumpsters looking for materials and ideas. A rescued mirror and a bunch of my junk mail became my materials.
I decided to stick with origami as something I’m familiar with and we created a floral still life by folding junk paper into an assortment of buds and blooms.
Here’s the results… the dogs were particularly interested in the mirror which, having sat next to a dumpster, probably had an olfactory collage they appreciated more than the one we created.
