The Concept

One simple principle :  every used discarded object, when recycled, can be transformed magically into a unique work of art.

The self taught artist, Amboise Monod, who came up with the recycling idea in 1969, said, ”  from nothing you can make anything.”

This now popular artistic activity stimulates students’ creativity and aids them to comprehend better the meaning of an object’s “ life cycle.” In many cases making garbage  formally dumped into the oceans into things  of beauty.
