Why: "WWII forced people to re-evaluate their lifestyles, and make do with what they had.
Yet, in today’s consumerist society, we are in the habit of buying, even if it’s not ‘broke.’
Our need for new has taken over our way of life, even global financial crisis.
This has not only taken a toll on ourhip pocket but has also affected our environment
with landfill sites filling to capacity and natural environments being lost."
"Keeping these thoughts in mind,
Off the Kerb has asked artists to propose a piece of work concentrating on the idea of ‘making new from old.’ "
