Angels just come, add joy to our lives… And then, one fine day, they must go, to keep up their journey to bring joy to other people’s lives, too.

And isn’t the specific case of readymade nothing more than a proposal for the act of ‘recycling’?

The idea occurred by initially analysing pieces from artists such as Duchamp and Smithson.

Then, within the context of recycling, the recent cases of Brazilian artist/designers such as Polish-born sculptor Franz Krajcberg and designer Campana brothers came to mind:

Alongside with this, a shot on a ‘recycling’ workshop given by Italian designer/professor Aldo Cibic at a Venetian Architecture university, on 2007 (video is in Italian only):
