Diaspora by Paul Villinski is an incredible example of how unbelievable exhibits can be crafted from materials one might usually be tempted to deem unusable or garbage-worthy.

In a similar vein as his "beer can butterflies" or his wheelchair airplane artworks, Diaspora by Paul Villinski features dozens of upcycled vinyl records, repurposed as a flock of birds taking flight in a dazzling display of color and implied motion.

There is something to be said for artists who are able to see something new and exciting in the most unlikely of materials. By creating art out of these kinds of origins, Paul Villinski demonstrates to his viewers and fans that every object, no matter how seemingly innocuous, can be a goldmine of potential waiting to be unleashed.
