One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Recycled Art

If one picture is worth one thousand words than how many words does it take to describe a picture of something recycled? For you mathematicians out there I ask you…is there such a formula? Seems to me that the second or third life of an object does not preclude its earlier lives…therefore recycled art is worth more words and is worth taking note of.

Above are some examples of furniture made from recycled materials found on the weburbanist blog (check out the grocery cart chair - genius!). Below is a recycled dog made from a sundry of colorful toys, created by contemporary London artist, Robert Bradford.

I want this dog! I think my pooches would enjoy playing with him!
