Recycled Newspapers Create Eloquent Shadows


Who says art can't be eco-friendly? Recycled Shadow is a wonderful installation by Spanish architectural collective Meva. First, they folded hundreds of old newspaper pages into windmills. Next, the windmills were hung up on nylon mesh to create suspended sculptures. This simple act provided shade to anyone who happened to pass by.

The project itself was undertaken after the London Municipal center found that 100 extra tons of paper waste are created by newspapers.
