Ever wondered what to do with those piles of discarded weekend newspapers? Or perhaps you read a daily paper, giving you even more waste to consider. Well, here are two people who take recycling to the next level: Chie Hitotsuyama and Tomiji Tamai.
Their studio is located in Fuji city in Shizuoka, and makes use of an old paper strip manufacturing plant warehouse once operated by Hitotsuyama’s family. Here they work with glue and twisted rolls of newspaper to breathe new life into what most of us place in the recycling bin.
They have been working on their zoological series since 2011, taking four years to develop a signature technique.
