Carolien Adriaansche makes recycle art, animals out of garbage. She has been collecting for years a whole assortment of junk, which she catalogues in her studio according to color and form.
After a visit to the Natural History Museum in Rotterdam in the early 1990s, her junk collection and love for animals united into one.
In contrast with the Natural History Museum, Carolien does not include the regular habitat of her displayed animals, but instead she creates a new bio-diversity environment for them made out of garbage. Garbage is one of the causes for the elimination of bio-diversity on earth.
