As a recycler and an artist who uses fiber, I collect my "throw-aways" including the netted bags that lemons and avocados come in, the plastic bags that my newspaper comes in and the newspaper itself. Then, I am faced with the challenge of transforming my "trash" into something beautiful that I can look at. However, I don't just want to look at the new thing I've created, I want it to mean something. While researching this question, I came across other artists who are thinking in these terms. Check out these artists and see what fast food paperbags are turned into.
