Artist Leopoldo Plentz Takes Trash to Another Level with 'Useless Things'
Leopoldo Plentz's mission was to force the viewer to rethink what is considered useless, essential, beautiful, and ordinary.
Implications - "I try to explore tiny findings: remains of torn, destroyed, deformed wrappings found on the street," Leopoldo Plentz says of his 'Useless Things' series. "Choosing these wrappings is totally intuitive, just seeing and picking them up, without second thoughts, otherwise reason would take over and they would be left behind." Well, aren't we lucky Plentz trusts his gut?
