Plastic bottles and other trash become robotic sculptures. - Filepix
AN empty plastic bottle. Is it trash? Or is it raw material for a raincoat, when melted and spun into yarn?
An art competition wants people to recycle waste and to view trash in a new light, by turning it into art works or sculptures. The winning pieces will be exhibited at Frangipani Langkawi Resort & Spa, organiser of the competition.
There are two categories. The first is open to Malaysians and Asean nationalities aged 18 and above.
The second category is for Malaysian secondary students above 13 years old.
There are 10 cash prizes for each category, ranging from US$200 to US$2,000 (RM640 to RM6,400) for the first category and RM450 to RM1,500 for the second. All winners will receive a four-day/three-night stay at the resort on Pulau Langkawi.
