HA Schult:
Famous Recycled Art Artist

 HA Schult is best known for his

‘trash people’. These trash
people have been displayed in
many of the world’s most major
cities from the parks of New York
City to the Great Wall of China.
 It took Schult 6 months and 30 assistants
to create these strange sculptures from
crushed cans, computer parts and
anything else he could find to create
them. What do you think is their purpose
and meaning?
 Trash People: Since 1996, Schult has
displayed one thousand life sized "Trash
People" made from crushed cans, electronic
waste and other rubbish to teach the world
about constant human consumption and
waste. They travelled to major tourist sites
such as Moscow's Red Square (1999), the
Great Wall of China (2001), and the
Pyramids of Giza (2002).
