It is amazing to see how lectures unroll one after another. Only few weeks back I blogged about there being no concrete method to define creativity and lo and behold, here I am reading a paper by Gardner trying to define and categorize creativity!! I would agree with his method and points taken to classify creativity. Though they may not encompass every aspects of creative works, they tends to cover major portion of them. Indeed, classification of work to be creative or not depends on domain and field. While, uniqueness and importance of the work is decided by the area in which it was accomplished, it is equally depended on the society or the judges of the work. History has proven many times that even the most magnificent work can be rejected by society.
We are not the only ones. I am not writing about extraterrestrial but about designers. “Trash clothes” have their fashion show since 1983. There is also a festival in Santa Fe for recycled objects. However, nothing is better than our princess, knights or hands.
At the beginnig, the recycling was used for old tools in metal. This metal was melt and forged again.
The idea of reused garbage is not really new but the esthetical aspect is. For example, in the paper “Design and the Play Instinct”, we have seen a sculpture of Picasso who used a bicycle seat and handles bar. Today, around the world, lots of people use garbage in this way.
I have to go. My trash can is full, I should see if something is still useful.
