My upcycling project aesthetic is going to be artificial nature. Artificial nature is the use of man made things that are put together or presented in a way that mimics a part of nature. To do this I am going to be using a variety of recycled/discarded materials to create a bird. I plan on using the different textures and colors of the materials I find to create a somewhat accurate representation. Like the above picture showing artwork by Natsumi Tomita, I plan to use variety in my work.
