Reverse Art Truck

The other day I was in material heaven. I got off a red eyed flight to Melbourne and then made it my mission for the day to make it out to Reverse Art Truck. Reverse Art Truck collects industrial waste for creative re-use. I was on a mission to look for Cotton Plastic Spindles. I want the flared base of the spindles to use in my Spinifex sculpture. I was pretty fortunate to find about 60 of these random objects. So I filled up a massive garbage bag of these things and then trucked on home via public transport. I received many a curious looks, people commenting that I had a few dead body parts in my mystery bag. Along with the curious looks I also ran into a nice bloke who also tinkers about make sculptures from recycled metals.
After getting these gems home I woke up to some tight muscles from carting this bag of junk around all day and the thought that these treasures need to make it back to WA.
I have come up with a cunning plan, i have brought my bike across and I can disguise them as "sporting articles".
The Sculpture by the Sea Adventures are never endless!

This is an organic looking floor mat I am creating. It was inspired by mold crawling up the wall
