Did you ever look at an item and think, this could be part of something greater? That's exactly what this unit is about. It's about selecting an object and using it as the basis for creating a work of art. The objective is simple; select an object from the large pile of junk, then create a work of art that somehow incorporates the object.
It doesn't matter how the object is incorporated. It could be visibly displayed, as is the case in the Ironman sculpture, or the item could be used to create the work of art, as is the case in the spray paint stencil of the chain. The only rule is that it should be obvious which object was used for the inspiration.
Most of these are still works in progress but you should be able to see where each is going.
