Waste can be reused and repurposed to create almost anything – from practical stoves to stunning bags or eye-catching jewellery. The exhibition showcases beautiful and useful upcycled and recycled objects, complemented by location photos and videos of makers at work.
Everything in the collection was once something else. Waste paper, metal, glass, plastic, textiles and rubber have been remade into sustainable, useful, and often beautiful, objects.
These items come from a unique collection of 4000 contemporary recycled objects collected from around the globe. The curators are Neil Thomson, film editor and photographer, and Ruth Thomson, educational author.
They create engaging bespoke exhibitions, celebrating creative recycling and inventive and resourceful makers.
The UK touring exhibition was first seen at the Eden Project in Cornwall. For more infromation visit their website at http://www.knowtrash.com/
