Colourful Apocalyptic Sculptures Created From Recycled Trash

Stephanie Kilgast is giving trash a second life and dealing with negative emotions, all at once. She's channeling her feelings about our current environmental crisis into art.

"Sculpting makes me happy," she says. "Destructive human activities push me into despair. Emotions drive me insane. Creating art balances everything out."

She converts rubbish like cans and broken plates into colorful sculptures. Mushrooms, coral, and flowers blossom from the neglected objects.

She refers to the mix as "spilled oil and cheerful apocalypse". The world may be ending, but plant life will reclaim our ruins with its colorful vines.

"My work is an ode to life, where plants and fungi meet insects, animals and minerals," the artist explains. "These encounters are growing in a colorful swirl of diversity, and the erratic growth develops on found objects, in a dialogue between humanity and nature.”
