trash to treasures

I really liked Yuken Teruya paper roll sculptures when I saw them a few months ago on a few different places .

But looking at his website the other day I fell completely in love with his dioramas (for lack of a better word) of trees inside paper bags.

He cuts the trees out of old fast food bags, assembles them and then places them back inside the bag they were cut from, creating these lovely scenes with the dappled light of the forest.

check out more of his work here.

They are very creative. It's really amazing when someone create something so beautiful from such an ordinary thing.
