Used to New – Recycled Kinetic Art

There is nothing new in art.  Artists take techniques from the past,  from other places, from other occupations, and use them in their own way.  It’s not the techniques or the tools that matter; it’s the artist’s ability to use them to create work that is unique, individual and relevant.

Recycled art is the art of creating something new from previously used bits and pieces.   It is all about finding new ways to use what would otherwise be thrown away, and creating something that intrigues and touches others.

The recycled kinetic art of Andrew Smith is one great example of this,  and I found it thanks to GreenMuze.
