Designer/artist Tom Price created a series of chairs for an exhibition entitled From Now To Eternity. He placed layers of polyester clothing into a hot steel former that had been molded into a seat shape. The plastic in the polyester then melted and transformed into a hard, shiny chair.
While this is indeed recycling at its most creative I don't think I will be making room in my home any time soon for one of these creations. Although certain members of my family, who shall remain nameless, have tried their best to convince me that their lack of being able to connect their clothes with the hamper means that they are merely trying to create fine art. Um, sure.
You may have noticed a new look to my blog. It too got the once over. Love it? Hate it? I'd love to hear what you like, dislike, and would love to see more of. (Don't worry, my skin is thick.)
