For this project I choose to recreate a Baroque style mirror out of trash. Baroque is an artistic style that used exaggerated motion and intense detail from the 1600's. The style was ornate, usually golden, and all about showing off how wealth and vanity. Recreating it in garbage takes the main idea of baroque style away from it, but still marinating the shape and color of the traditional style. The use of the mirror increases the sense of vanity. The piece if made from cardboard, apple core, orange peels, tea bags, trash bags, paper plates, and other papers and cardboards from various containers. Using familiar trash items also makes it more relatable then using gold again taking away the eliteness of baroque.
