It is most intriguing to see boxes of rubbish being sold for $50 or $100 and to know that about 700 such boxes have been sold. Look at NYC Garbage where trash from New York City is packed into plastic boxes and sold. Unusual sculpture.
In a sense, many of us who are closet karang-guni's can appreciate how such garbage can hold sentimental value and conversation starters.
This is a form of recycling too, or upcycling as some would call it.
Been making handbound books using largely upcycled materials, and some are available on my etsy and at Dawanada. Do take a look.
