Merry Christmas and a Happy 2007 from Barcelona

Dear reader, here’s a merry Christmas (tree) to you from Barcelona. The Abetus Porex is the beautiful Christmas tree hanging in the Maremagnum port of Barcelona, inviting you to look up at it from underneath and hence connect the tree with the floor. The tree is made from polystyrene packaging waste (from last year’s Christmas gifts?), cardboard and projected lights (the video of which is on their web site). Their message: recycle! The coolest thing is the way they communicate their mission with a fun video (in Spanish) and photos documenting the ‘making of’.
A more ethical message comes from Estudio Mariscal with a homemade animation, wishing you a Happy 2007! ::Abetus Porex ::Estudio Mariscal
