Alistair Gibson's Carbon Art is a really neat use of carbon fiber that makes this industrial and automotive composite material appropriate for indoor decor.

Each of Alistair Gibson's Carbon Art fish contain an immense amount of detail. It's no wonder that Gibson is so handy with carbon fiber, as he is an ex-F1 mechanic. Many of Gibson's Carbon Art pieces are made with recycled automotive parts from his F1 days.

Implications - I think it's amazing that Gibson is finding such a new, inventive way to reduce his and other people's carbon footprint on the planet while simultaneously providing incredible pieces of artwork. I can't wait to see these fish displayed in some sort of aquarium.
