The Inhabitat crew was pretty blown away by artist Aurora Robson‘s artwork at the recent Designers & Agents Green Room, so we thought we’d take this opportunity to explore her body of work in more detail. For instance: it is stunningly intricate, deliciously colorful, uses solar-powered LEDs to glow at night, and has diverted some 20,000 plastic bottles from the landfill. Bam.

Robson’s work uses recycled materials to such an extent that she now enjoys receiving junk mail because it gives her new material to create her work. “The language and costly graphic devices and fancy printing used in junk mail gives it a persuasive, positive and personal flavor, making it great fodder for my work. My practice is ultimately about recognizing and embracing new possibilities and encouraging others to do the same,” she writes in her artist’s statement. Some of her more memorable pieces involve plastic bottles carved, cut and twisted into romantic, unrecognizable forms. Like the best artists working with recycled materials, Robson makes the trash she works with a thing of beauty and mystery.
