Woven coke cans and wire frames

Inspired by the hill tribes in Vietnam, their ingenuity and practical ability to turn anything into a useful tool for life. It seems that however far you go, even the most remote and isolated places, the giants have been there before you. But what ends up discarded in mountains of rubbish for those that have in the western world, becomes a bird feeder, or rice measurer, or scarecrow, for those that have not. A humbling message for the obcenity of opulance and waste in the western world.
