A Second Life for Recycled Book Sculpting

00-Long-Bin-Chen-A-Second-Life-for-Recycled-Book-Sculpting-www-designstack-co
Long-Bin Chen is able to carve, out of date books, newspapers, magazines and computer paper, into what looks from afar, like a marble of wooden sculpture.  This is just a very small part of the tons of paper that go to waste every year.  Making art out of refuse should not be seen as a solution to the problem of waste, but as an indication that these materials still have a value, a use after their primary life is over.  As a second life, that these lovely sculptures, express only part, of their potential. If production of paper can't be helped, at least we can put it to good use, after we are finished, with one of its uses.
