Noisy, wet and playful ‘Fountain of Toys’ is a recycled beauty

Art is syncing of elements in a form which arouses our senses and appeals to our sentiments. Recycled art is an inspiring variety of art form to generate environmental awareness. A few days back we savored the image of a brightly colored butterfly made from waste and today we come across yet another master piece all crafted from recyclable waste. Los Angeles based architect Greg Lynn unveiled his new sculptural artwork at the Hammer Museum, LA. As part of his spring and summer project for the museum Greg crafted a fountain using fifty seven prefabricated plastic whale and shark toys. The toys were cut and welded together in multiple layers with water spouting from its top and base. The entire piece was then given a generous application of white automotive paint thereby making it an ideal gathering place for warm summer months.
