Trash animals is a series of artworks created by @b0rdalo_ii, an artist born in lisbon. the series’s goal is to draw attention to the current crisis of waste production and its effects on the planet. the idea is simple but powerful – it is “to depict nature itself, in this case, animals, out of materials that are responsible for its destruction.” most of the materials used are so-called “end-of-life” materials found in wastelands, abandoned factories, or at random, while some others are obtained from companies going through a recycling process. at first sight, the materials make up a cohesive whole, but that vision quickly disintegrates. we then notice the many different objects that the work was made from – like tires, bumpers, old appliances, bicycle wheels, and a whole array of other discarded things. learn more here: http://www.bordaloii.com
