0 TRASH to Amazing ANIMAL SCULPTURES by Artist Bordalo II (25 Photos + Video)

Amazing! Where we see trash, this artist sees art and uses his artistic talent and incredible skills to spread his message about endless waste production by creating some of the most stunning animal sculptures out of plastic and metal waste.

Therefore, unlike most artist, Portuguese street artist Bordalo II (Artur Bordalo) doesn't have to buy his material - he scavenges it. He seeks to portray nature (animals) with the materials that threaten it, using the walls on streets and other outside surroundings as his canvas.

0 The "SALT BRIDE" Photo Series by Israeli Artist, Sigalit Landau

Fascinating. View the transformation of a black dress after it was dunked into the Dead Sea and left there for over a few months. It was done for a photo project. The dress probably weighed a ton after it was retrieved from the salty waters. It's also more proof (as if anymore is needed), of how salt-rich the waters of Dead Sea are. 

The photographs are on display at London's Marlborough Contemporary until September 3, 2016...

Israeli artist Sigalit Landau created an eight-part photo series called 'Salt Bride' - using the Dead Sea. She submerged a black gown in its waters in 2014 and returned multiple times over the span of three months to capture its salinity-induced transformations, as glimmering crystals gradually conquered the dark fabric.
