Unwanted Treasure

An idea of making use of the trash while I started to think of the “trash” I produced from my own body. I think of nails and I started to collect nail in any public space.

Many funny response I got when I have my nail collecting in the public space. Some think that it is gross and too private to simply give it to others. Some might think that why not to donate the nail and could get a free portrait drawing.

I then spontaneously create some tiny sculpture from the collected nails. I transform it into small little creatures that I imagined.
