Pitch it or Pitch a Tent?

May 19, 2009


Armed with several used plastic shopping bags and leftover straws, Seattle artist Brad Winchester has turned trash into shelter. Each bag was rescued from a landfill and has been hand cut and sewn together with fishing line. Running wire through each straw gives the tent rigidity and structure. I'm not sure Brad's prototype is ready testing on the peaks of Mount Rainier, but it's definitely a work of art. Tell us some of your great ideas using recycled waste!
