Beyond Recycling: Recycling the Obsolete

Kershaw has explained that although she considers herself part of the green art movement, she’s doing more than just general art recycling. She’s recycling the obsolete. Items like VHS tapes are in danger of disappearing altogether since they are a form of technology that is no longer used. If artists and collectors don’t save them then they’ll just end up in the landfills and eventually be gone. This type of recycled art uses green art principles to preserve a historic period of time.
