In August, The Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon opened the doors on ManufRactured: The Conspicuous Transformation of Everyday Objects, a first-of-its-kind exhibit featuring a new class of objects:

"This video shows the installation in progress and includes interviews with artists Jason Rogenes (polystyrene and cardboard), Laura Splan (you MUST listen to her interview…I think you’ll be shocked by both the materials she uses and the elegant results) and one of my favorite artists, Harriete Estel Berman (recycled tin cans). I am always amazed at what artists ‘see’ when they look at any given material. Wonderful stuff."
