Carlos Bunga, Sarah Sze, and Megan Rooney all use everyday objects in their work to create interesting shapes, landscapes, and sculptural forms.
In Occupy 2020, Carlos Bunga uses only cardboard boxes (over 500 of them!) to create a large sweeping landscape that is both meditative and playful.
Sarah Sze created Images in Debris by combining hundreds of small objects and materials with images projected all around the space to create an amazing sculptural constellation. Some of the objects used to make this piece include: paint jars, water bottles, live plants, wire, paper, a jar of mayonnaise, and a real cake!
Here, Megan Rooney uses objects like a shopping cart, dish glove, and a hockey stick to tell a character-driven story in HUSH SKY MURMUR HOLE.
There are so many ways to create cool crafts, artworks and sculptures using only the everyday objects and materials you can find around your house. Here are some of our favourite ideas that we have found online, organized by material:
