Steven Siegel is an extraordinary environmental artist who creates large art pieces made from unwanted material. His recycled trash sculptures have been installed in many places around the world. They are a silent testimony to how individuals can influence the environment they live in.

Some of Steven Siegel's amazing recycled trash sculptures include stacks of multi-layered waste newspaper. The forest setting of these pieces is a poignant of how much paper the world consumes.

Implications - It's reassuring to know that we live in a day and age where artists/activists like Steven Siegel are not only celebrated, but vaunted for their efforts at making something beautiful out of the waste that many believe is slowing crushing our planet. Do not be surprised if you see or hear his name much more, as he is the definition of an environmentalist, political artist.
