Haribaabu Naatesan  created the Beetle art piece as part of Volkswagen’s Think Blue Campaign . The extensive assortment of trash was collected during Think Blue Clean Up drives undertaken by the German auto-engineering firm at various locations. The trash was then meticulously sorted and assembled by Natesaan and his team over the course of 16 days, as shown in this nifty time-lapse video .
The Think Blue Beetle is presently installed at the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival  in Mumbai, where it will be on display until February 12.
