Unbelievable works of art made from reclaimed household objects
Sayaka Ganz is a Japanese artist . The Japanese Shinto beliefs, about the fact that all organisms and objects have spirits, have marked Ganz’s childhood. She learned that objects thrown before the final of their usefulness “weep at night inside the trash bin”.
Based on these beliefs and on her artistic qualities, she realized works of art, using discarded and reclaimed household objects. Ganz says: ” I only select objects that have been used and discarded. My goal is for each object to transcend its origin by being integrated into an animal/ organic forms that are alive and in motion. This process of reclamation and regeneration is liberating to me as an artist. Building these sculptures helps me understand the situations that surround me. It reminds me that even if there is a conflict right now, there is also a solution in which all the pieces can coexist peacefully.

Origami Street Artist Mademoiselle Maurice
French Artist Mademoiselle Maurice produced a public art piece as part of the 2013 ARTAQ Festival in Angers, France. The colorful installations were made of 30,000 origami pieces with the help of local school kids, adults or ‘leisure centers’ residents. All the folded components were prepared a couple of months before the festival during the weekly workshops organized by Mademoiselle Maurice seeking to “deepen the link between individuals who form that human network [to] which we belong and [that] we frequent every day.”
The Saint-Maurice cathedral was adorned with two installations—a geometric pattern on the front gate and a rainbow of origami on the front steps. A third installation, a massive origami mural, was placed on the banks of the Maine river.
Mademoiselle Maurice, 29, was born and raised in the high mountains of Savoy. Following the study Architecture in Lyon, Maurice settled in Japan, for a year long stint.
Inspired by the tragic events of March 11, 2011 (earthquakes, tsunami and nuclear power plant explosion of Fukushima) while living in Tokyo, Maurice decided to start composing urban works in connection and direct correlation with these evets- taking on the legend of Sadako Sasaki’s and her 1000 origami cranes, a little girl who lived the tragedy of Hiroshima.
Now based in Paris, Mademoiselle Maurice develops and creates compositions of countless colorful works from origami, lace, embroidery, or other mixed media.
These ultra colorful creations are immediate in demand and penetrate the viewer’s emotion through resonating visual dialogue- Although light in appearance, the work of Mademoiselle Maurice propose and raises many questions about human nature and the interactions that sustain people and their environment.
