I Can't Think of a Good Butt Joke

Artist, Jesús "Bubu" Negrón commissioned street cleaners to collect cigarette butts and then, using the paper, created this incredible rug which sinulates the look of a woven textile. The art project was presented at the sharjah biennale documenting the street cleaners at work and helpers fabricating the carpet. Awesome!

  1. I was going to make a cig butt necklace for a chain-smoking friend of mine. As a joke, that is.
    This IS awesome.

  4. This is a really great recycling project, but am I the only one squirming just thinking about all the germs you have to handle when working with so many cig-butts picked up on the street?

  5. Ansie - I'm sure you're not the only one. It's pretty much a germaphobe's nightmare. Thanks for the comment!
