Abir says’

Unlike us and the living world we are a part of, things and objects are immortal. They may become redundant after they have served a particular function or purpose. But they continue to be around us. Their rate of decomposition is very slow compared to living matter. Adapting these objects for a new purpose or function is like giving them a new lease of life. And often, one that adds excitement and a range of alternative possibilities.

Not just restricted to art, recycled objects can be incorporated in almost every field today.Paper water medicine electronics and hardware just to name a few.

On a more important level, adapting used or discarded objects saves a lot of energy and avoids the build up of garbage and rubbish around us. 

Recycling is a perspective and not just an object or an activity.

The potential is huge, it just needs creative, active involvement.”
