Upcycling: Yield Shelving


Reminiscent of the Lago Tangram shelves from last year, Chris Burton's Upcycling exhibition used construction waste as the basis for his art and craft pieces. Burton said, "Despite construction and demolition debris being the highest percentage of waste entering landfills today, there is a lack of effort by residential contractors and construction companies to take responsibility of this growing problem." Burton hopes his exhibition will create social awareness, encouraging individuals to act locally and think globally when it comes to finding ways to divert waste from landfills. [GT]
