Green Artists - Recycle Like You Mean It!


Frequently, we read that we Americans need to be more creative in thinking about going green. What can you recycle that you haven't, yet?

Sometimes it takes an artist to jog our sloggy synapses into thinking creatively:
There are many ways to dispose of household items we no longer want or need and we want to do so in a more "green" way.
Brian Goggin, is an artist in San Francisco who not only knows how to give new life to these old pieces of furniture: sofas, chairs, lamps, bathtubs, grandfather clocks, televisions, and even a side table complete with telephone fastened to the outside of this building, but how to create an installation is called "defenestration," the act of throwing someone or something out a window. Incorporate it now into your vocabulary!

Thanks to the Graphic Design Forum for pointing us in a new direction.
