"I was very flattered when I received your email asking me to join the Landfillart Project and got very excited about the project once I realized the ethos and scope of it. Finding much of my inspiration from found objects and feeling passionately about the environment the project seemed to combine two things I am very excited about as well as offer a challenge which I was eager to get stuck into - to make art from a hub cap."Veronica Forsgren
