Artistic recycling ?

While we were in Hawaii, I needed to shop for a dress for the wedding.  And you can’t have a new dress without the right shoes.  So here we are in Nordstroms at the Ala Moana Shopping Center.  Gugger Petter close upWe’re all done buying shoes and we’re headed out when I spot a large woven piece of art hanging behind the counter.  On close inspection, it is made of newspapers woven carefully to make a tapestry of a street scene.  The clerk behind the counter tells me it is by an artist named Gugger Petter.  Check her out.  The only camera we had was a cell phone which didn’t do this amazing piece of work justice.  I’m posting a close up but you can go to her site to see the whole thing.  The one I saw is listed under works: street scene: 5 of 6.

    Cool.

    I have seen that in the store, but I never got up close to inspect it or find out who actually did it. Lots of fun!
