Throwaway

nativity scene made of plastic junk This nativity scene was made by the personnel of the Ateneo de Manila University's Office of International Relations. The design concept is based on both mosaic and stained glass, but it is completely made of plastic junk—bottle caps and bottoms, straws, and ring binders—with a few broken optical disks thrown in. I find it absolutely fantastic!

There are sixteen nativity scenes around the campus created by the different units that make up the university. One of the criteria for their creation is the use of recycled and indigenous products. I have yet to walk around to take their pictures, but I'll be sure to post them here once I have.
