Well it was a truly amazing Saturday at Construction Junction in Pittsburgh. To contribute my ideas and vision and energies in the arena of creative repurposing or applied deconstruction was an honor.
Two years ago I worked as a welder fabricating the Rose Parade Floats for the City of Portland, Oregon. This chandelier is made from a support armature that was eventually cut out of the float structure. It makes a perfect modern hanging light. Own a piece of Portland reclaimed history!

This work to help install the work is a demonstration of how the Artists’ Coalition of Flagstaff has found a sturdy partnership with the Flagstaff Mall. The Coalition’s gallery relocated to the mall as a tenant last year, and this is the first year the recycled art exhibit has taken place there. As one of the organization’s biggest shows, the mall has opened up its space to allow some of the larger pieces to display in the mall’s common areas.
MATERIALS: Piano keys reclaimed from early 20th Century piano. Bulbs: 3 x 1 ft incandescent display bulbs.

”Generally, the industry knocks something down, sends it to somebody else and it’s recycled,” Ho says. ”What we try to do is keep things on site. Our whole perspective is to demonstrate that we can take responsibility for the things that we consume.”

”The old blond brick warehouse on Anstey station was totally covered with graffiti,” Breathe design director Jeremy McLeod says. Bricks salvaged when the building was demolished were reused in the lobby, making a virtue of the graffiti.
”The bricklayers loved it. They’re used to graffiti artists destroying their brickwork, so they got to reassemble it the way they saw fit. The new pixelated effect of the graffiti looks sensational,” McLeod says.
