關於管子錄像與升級回收 / About Vcyclescope and Upcycle
The definition of “garbage” is “something useless”. However, it’s pretty subjective to define an object to be useful or useless. Waste paper can be recycled, or sent to a further step : Upcycle, to recreate the old stuff into a new one with much more value. Every single object keeps it’s own characteristic, and every single characteristic is useful. To dig out the feature and give it a new life is what artists do.
Vcyclescope is an upcycle photographic gadget handmade with waste: paper core of toilet roll, kitchen paper, cling film… It reduces waste from its source. Each kaleidoscope is unique with decoration by recycle materials (old newspaper, magazine, catalogue, leaflet, packaging ribbon…). Both its function and aesthetic quality are upgraded from its original value. The world seen through it is very different. Which became beautiful, surreal and amazing. Whatever you capture through it can become artistic pattern. Even though the dullest thing in your daily life can be turned into inspiring images. Life will never be boring with it!
