This event has ended.

Wastes - the residue of civilized society. In recent years, Japan finally saw an increase in its awareness of recycling, motivating some artists to create works of art using unwanted articles. "Recycl'art" is a project inaugurated in 2001 by Igfy Corporation, based on the philosophy of the NPO Global Sports Allicance: a policy of bequeathing used sporting goods to subsequent generations by transforming them into art.

At the sport summit held in 2005, a wide variety of recycl'art works was submitted by various creators. Cutting a conspicuous figure among them was Kiraku Kubota, who transformed athletes' beloved items into art with his unique sensibility and love for nature.

Kubota utilizes not only sport gear but household garbage like coffee grounds and washed-out tea. He always reflects upon the destruction of nature accelerated by daily human activities. It is this sincere stance that drives him to create something more powerful than other recycl'art.
