Recently, I’ve been supporting a group of environmentally friendly artists in Shanghai. These creative teachers and students have come together and started the LOOP movement, using old recycled materials to build new things. Today, they gave me a very special gift ~ a portrait made from over 33,000 recycled buttons! They explained how the process of making this picture was actually quite complicated. If you look closely, there are so many layers, each overlapping each other, giving it a 3D effect. On average, it took them approximately 8 minutes to place one button on the picture, which adds up to over 4400 hours in total! I’m truly very happy to receive this special gift. I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big heartfelt thank you to the amazing LOOP team. Thank you.

我在上海支持的一班为环保艺术创作的老师和同学们(LOOP活动),今天他们特别为我送上一幅用了33,000多粒回收的钮扣所制成的画。制作过程繁复,一层一层重叠,平均需要8分钟完成一粒钮扣,而且还是3D的,所以共花了4400多小时完成。真的很开心,谢谢他们的礼物!
