Inspirational recycling

 Upcyling - world mapImage : Samsill

It’s no longer  just about  recycling. It is about upcycling and superior quality, inventiveness. Recycling has gone to a new level and why not? It’s the give them a box of bits and see how creative they can be mode and it’s fantastic! Artist Susan Stockwell made this world map for the University of Bedfordshire from motherboards and other computer components. Upcycling has become part of our art world now and there are some impressive pieces. In a more practical sense, @tomtolkien has some excellent classroom ideas on his blog for that old computer which might otherwise just be collecting dust. So look around your school and make an effort to creatively use the old technology in a way which is more inspirational and satisfying.

  1. Sally, great post as usual. An idea jumped in my head: do we need to recycle our ideas?

    • I think we have always had the wisdom of the ages which are recycled ideas! We do tend to go around in circles with our thinking and then just put it in a different setting/era. It would be good to get some real change in human thinking.
