    no offense to other “DIY” and “reuse” type projects you’ve featured, but this is by far my favorite so far…

    Have you seen the stuff El Anatsui has created with cast off bits of metal foil?
    El Anatsui … uses castoff things to make a statement about castoff lives. The “kente cloths” are actually made of caps and foil wrappers from liquor bottles. The detritus of wasted lives is used to create replicas of the traditional cloth worn proudly by royalty. The “wastebasket” is made up of printing plates from obituaries for a populace laid waste by AIDS. The artworks themselves are so gorgeous, yet the message behind them is so grim.
