Recycling electrical wire can be done in many ways, but creating a sculpture can be the most creative way to do so. This 'Small Octopus' is made by John B. Fauvel and constructed completely out of scrapped electrical goods, such as TV sets and slot machines.  

The sea creature is cleverly made out of knitted wire, and is selling for $900.

Just imagine stumbling across this at night, on a beach!

Implications - This electrical wire octopus is a phenomenal idea because it finds a way to repurpose for all kinds of disparate scrap material that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Take a look at the images and be sure to join the conversation by leaving your thoughts below.
