RECYCLED TRASH AS ART:
I use things like old, cheesy record covers, post cards, magazines and trashy paperback book covers as a starting point for my hand-cut and paste collages. I then use only objects found on the ground, in the trash, junk mail or recycling bin. Sometimes incorporating my own Polaroid photographs. I often leave them out in public as street art for everyone to enjoy (or destroy.) I have also started sending some as Mail Art. You can see more of my collage work here:
