Junk Mail to Art
My friend, Christina, knowing I’ll be in Manhattan next week, passed on word of a cool workshop there.
I love the idea, and it can be done anywhere: turning your junk mail, your pile, into a piece of art. When you think about it, there’s no end to the forms one’s pile of garbage paper and odds and ends can take. Highly customized notecards at the very least.
It’d be interesting to take one day’s trash/recycling and see what can be made of it.
If you exercise your creativity and come up with something, send a photo. I’d love to post it.
Note: the wonderfully inventive artist Bryant Holsenbeck has an ongoing slide show on her site displaying her art made from trash and recyclables.
