To create art is to produce works that are appreciated for their beauty and form. But would you still choose to continue creating these beautiful pieces, when the production process is an ugly, wasteful one? For one artist, she decided that exercising her creativity should not come at the expense of the environment.
That artist is Joyce Orallo, an interior design graduate from LASALLE College of the Arts. Through the many years working as a crafter, from conducting painting classes to holding polymer clay earring-making workshops, she saw that almost every medium creates a sizable amount of wastage. “During my experimentation and production, I realised I was creating so much rubbish,” says Joyce. “Like crazy a lot.”
