Strange Sculptures Made of Discarded Clothes (15 pics)

Chances are that if you ran into Guerra de la Paz's colorful sculptures in an art museum, you'd enjoy them from afar and then take a few steps closer. That's because the Cuban born American artists who make up Guerra de la Paz, Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz, create curiously interesting sculptures made out of old clothes. In fact, they originally took their materials from the waste bins of second-hand goods shipping companies in Miami's Little Haiti.

Exploring materialism in contemporary society, the sculptures are meant to make us think about our “mass-produced refuse.” The overabundance of discarded clothes though beautiful in some ways, seem depressingly sad when collectively hanging from a ceiling or arranged like a weeping rainbow.
