The Rethunk Junk Project

The Rethunk Junk Project is an assignment for PSYC 260/ENV 260 - Environmental Psychology.

The inspiration for this project comes from concerns of living in a society where nearly everything is planned for rapid obsolescence, where waste is overwhelming us and where few people know how to actual make or repair things. For this assignment students are challenged to create an object from items that would otherwise be discarded. They repurpose or upcycle common materials and items to make a piece that is artistic, functional, makes a statement or is some combination of art, function and statement.
