Bouncing Around the Blogosphere: {Recycle LACMA}

I just love it when your favorite blog leads you to a new amazing, favorite blog. It’s like they know you,  everything in the universe is in tandem, and all is right with the world. Ahhh…

Anywho, I stumbled across Recycle LACMA this morning via DesignSponge. Let’s just say, I was blown away. Recycle LACMA is Los Angeles-based artist Robert Fontenot’s chronicle of his efforts to find new uses for old, unwanted items he purchased from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art earlier this year. What a neat idea and I love, love, love, scrolling down for the little reveal of what was made from the pre-existing items.

Two Guatemalan pants became two stuffed teddy bears.

This purple Korean chima became a dog bed. All the newly created items have their accession numbers embroidered on them.

I also enjoyed taking a peek at another of Fontenot’s projects: Dictionary of Earthly Delights. It reminded me of the word-association illustrations we used to do in GT, but much deeper thinking than making your T in Tree sprout leaves. 🙂  Enjoy!
