Junk Mail Mosaics

Artist Sandhi Schimmel Gold recreates iconic portraits out of unwanted junk mail and greeting cards. Each mosaic piece is handcut and colored using non-toxic materials.

Via Inhabitat’s Helen Morgan:
Discussing the objectives behind the portraits, Gold states the aim to reflect “society’s obsession with beauty through advertising – and the endless images that bombard us daily.” By purposely combining images derived from advertising along with pieces of text and image from discarded sources these mosaics are specifically formed to reflect the nature of consumption.
