Occasionally we have the opportunity to enhance blighted property while creatively emphasizing the importance of recycling and conservation. Over the years, we’ve designed installations reusing carpet, plastic water bottles, plastic bags, cardboard, and zip ties, to name a few.

Most notably, we’ve developed a way to address unkempt vacant lots by weaving reclaimed industrial vinyl through the chain link fences that often surround them. We cut the material into strips, then we work with volunteers to weave them through the fence and attach them with zip ties. Our fence weavings transform drab urban eyesores into colorful geometric displays while keeping hundreds of pounds of scrap vinyl out of the landfill!
