People, Products, & Places

Yuken Teruya is an artist based in New York and Berlin. He works with various materials such as toilet paper rolls, paper shopping bags and butterfly chrysalises. We love his paper roll artwork (pictured above), reminding us these simple cardboard tubes were once part of a majestic forest—forests that could be wiped out if we continue our use-once-and-destroy culture.

Jane Perkins is a 're-maker', taking inspiration from found objects and working them into something new.
