“Green” Student Art

There were these paper torch looking things on the quad at UTK. I wanted to grab a few shots and a student approached me to explain the project. He used entirely recycled materials (the Daily Beacon, paint stir sticks from a hardware store) and the installation would be up for a few hours. There was a breeze blowing that gave a nice vibe to the 40 or so “flowers” or torches. I’m guessing flowers. Or torches.

    I’m not really sure why, but this is one of my favorite shots that you’ve ever posted. No other reason, I guess, other than that it’s very enjoyable for the eye to peruse.

    I saw these on my way to class and had no idea what they were…

    But now I know and am pleasantly surprised.
