There are those who will throw away their old record covers but there are those that will use them to create some mind blowing artistic stuff. One of them is definitely Christian Marclay, a New York visual artist, DJ and composer who used record covers of Michael Jackson , Doors, Donna Summer, David Bowie and many others for this piece of art. The relationship of sound, vision, music, art and performance is the focus of his work.
Instead of drawing graffiti on the walls, a NYC street artist Michael Neff has decided to use the shadows that lamp posts make to create street art. Neff is only using chalk and stone sediment to outline the shadows into stencils looking like figures or just simple art.
Who would have thought that a pile of clothes could be art? Artist Bela Borsodi was the one that came up with the idea of folding shirts, jackets, dresses and other clothing into different face expressions.

Polystyrene are mostly used to protect articles from breaking when sent in packages. A professor of digital arts at University of Oregon, Michael Salter, uses polystyrene to make robot sculptures, formula cars and bikes. His biggest sculpture is a 22 feet tall robot surrounded with small robots to make passers-by keep distance so they don’t accidentally knock it over. Salter creates the sculptures by cutting the polystyrene in pieces and gluing them together, and it took him several months to do it.
