Miniature Sculptures and Mosaics Created Out of Discarded MetroCards
Thomas McKean is a New York Based artist who sees a value in a MetroCard even after using it. All he needs is a bunch of discarded MetroCards, and once he gets them on his hands, he creates beautiful miniature sculptures or mosaics.
In the expert hands of Yin Xiuzhen, old clothing articles worn by everyday urban citizens become unique pieces of architecture. So far, the artist has created some of the cities she’s visited throughout the years, including Berlin, Vancouver, Seattle and her home city of Beijing.
