What is really annoying is the amount of things that can’t be recycled, especially when it comes to plastics, and what do you do with your collection of rubber ducks when the children grow up and no longer need them. The answer? Give them to artists or to schools for art projects – paint on canvas is so last year, but you need to have enough of them to make it worthwhile!
Rubber ducks, pozi screws, corrugated paper, bottles, dressmakers pins, scalpel blades, glass beads, cut paper, paintbrushes, coloured pens, album sleeves, tin foil and bottle tops, old metal and found objects – these are just some of the materials artists from across the globe, including T.P Hardisty, Jack Tanner, Susila Bailey-Bond, Love Jordan, Keith Haynes, Natasja van der Meer, Finn Stone, Sanjay Dhawan, Samin Ahmadzadeh, Joanne Tinker and Wycliffe Stutchbury, have collect together and transform into works of art, the materials of which only become apparent as you move near to the artworks.
Ffound, the annual show of work created from a variety of reused and unusual materials is back at the Woolff Gallery in London.
