Although its title is fitting given the materials used to construct this piece, U.K. artist Elliott Mariess‘ ‘Waste’ is the opposite, a fantastic work of art skillfully realized out of the everyday. Constructed almost entirely out of single-use plastic cutlery, ‘Waste’ is an imaginative and intricate usage of hundred’s, if not thousand’s of pieces, generating value out of something that is almost universally recognized as instant-garbage. Ultimately ‘Waste’ represents the immense talent of Mariess for not only clever social commentary, but also aesthetically significant art.
