Shifting Crap to Crafts

 - Sep 6, 2008   Updated: Apr 8 2011
Remanufactured is the name of an exhibit to bring interest to the reusing of modern waste for crafts. From dissection (removing most of an item to reveal the art) to manipulation (weaving hair into intricate patterns), variation which altered lipsticks into fascinating patterns, this is an excersise in looking at the world around us in a different light.

"Whether you study art, craft or design, you can add clay and performance or embroidery and computer animation to your repertoire of making skills. Promiscuity with materials, techniques and concepts prevails as artists have â€" and continue â€" to actively cross the boundaries between visual arts disciplines."

Implications - Today's eco-conscious consumer will surely appreciate the use of recycled material in art and design.
