1000 Statues from Trash in Rome


German artist HA Schult makes people out of household waste and glue. By the thousands, he is a one-man recycling center. "Anything can be made into art. Mankind's confines have narrowed, the freedom of art is unlimited.We live in the trash time: we produce trash and we become trash. Therefore HA Schult's 'Trash People' are images of ourselves."

Since 1996 he has installed them everywhere from the Pyramids at Giza to the top of the Great Wall of China. Until March 29th you can see them in the Piazza Del Popolo in Rome. ::HA Schult via ::Splurch
