RECYCLING

THE ART OF RECYCLING

 

THE PROJECT “ART OF RECYCLING” STARTED AS AN IDEA PRESENTED BY THE GREEK TEAM WITH A MAIN PURPOSE TO TRY THROUGH A SERIES OF ACTIONS TO UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR RECYCLING IN OUR EVERYDAY LIVES AND THE WAY THAT GIVES A MEANING OF EXPRESSING ART.

 

HAVING THE ABILITY TO SEE BEYOND AN OBJECT, BEYOND ITS USE, WE CREATED FROM THE SEEMINGLY USELESS OBJECT ANOTHER ONE, A NEW ONE THAT IS FUNCTIONAL.


THIS IS THE MEANING OF THE ART OF RECYCLING, THE ART OF SEEING BEYOND THE OBVIOUS.

 

ART IS ACCESSIBLE TO ANYONE WHO LETS ONESELF BE EXPRESSED. THROUGH IT WE GAVE YOUNG PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES AND CREATE ART THROUGH THE USE OF RECYCLED MATERIALS SUCH AS GLASS, PAPER, PLASTIC, PROVING ONCE AGAIN THAT DISABILITY IS NOT INABILITY.

 

 

WE GAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO THE LOCAL COMMUNITY TO REALIZE THAT RECYCLING IS EVERYONE‘S OBLIGATION AND THAT PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES CAN BECOME EXCELLENT TUTORS WHO CAN TEACH THE METHODS THEY HAVE LEARNED IN SCHOOL TO STUDENTS OR AT EVENTS RUN BY THE LOCAL MUNICIPALITY.

 

IT ALSO SHOWED THAT PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES HAVE THE SAME SENSITIVITIES AS OTHER CITIZENS AND CAN BE INSTRUMENTAL IN IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR ALL THE COMMUNITY.

 

IT IS A FACT THAT NOWADAYS THE MODERN LIFESTYLE AND THE HECTIC PACES OF OUR LIVES AFFECT ON ONES CREATIVITY AND THE EXPRESSION OF IT. THIS WAS ANOTHER THING HIGHLIGHTED BY THE PROJECT, BRINGING UP AND UNDERLINE THAT THE EXPRESSION OF CREATIVITY IS STILL HERE FOR EVERYONE NO MATTER OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES.

 

RECYCLED MATERIALS WE USED: PAPER CARDBOARD, TOILET PAPER ROLLS, BEER CAPS, ROPE, WOOD, PLASTIC BOTTLES, NEWSPAPER, COTTON, TIN CANS ETC.

 

THE REASONS WE CHOSE THOSE MATERIALS BASICALLY WERE BECAUSE THEY WERE EASY TO FIND IN EVERY HOUSEHOLD, AT LOW COST AND EASY TO USE.


WE HAVE ALSO USED OTHER MATERIALS THAT HELPED US TO BRING THE ARTWORK IN ITS FINAL FORM SUCH AS: GLUE, MARKERS, SCISSORS, METAL WIRE, BALLOONS (THAT WE USED AS A MOLD), KITCHEN UTENSILS, PAINT, BRUSHES ETC
