“I wanted to be involved in this project because I wanted to make a positive impact through the transformation of an object that would otherwise get tossed aside…left to rust and take up space in a landfill…when it could be such a powerful messenger…a work of art and inspiration of alternative…to make people rethink the possibilities of every object having the potential of a second life.”Selina Farmer
