Photo series Beauty of Reuse
In this photo series we photograph the top 10 most important recyclable materials in an artistic way.
Recycling is one of the best ways to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. Recycling is important to both the natural environment and us. We must act fast as the amount of waste we create is increasing all the time.
In this image the recyclable material is magazines. For this image we have manually made 1,000 beads from old magazines. First we cut even strips from the covers of old magazines. We then cut these strips diagonally into two equal parts. To then roll these strips up one after the other and glue them into a bead. In the end we spent more than 22 hours on this part. The next step was stringing the beads into strings of different lengths. And finally we merged the strands into the neck piece.
