The photo above is taken by a friend of mine – Andy, and if you click on the link under the photo you’ll visit his photo stream on Flickr.
The creature on the photo is made entirely from garbage pieces. And this is what he wrote about the photo of the “Garbage Man” above:
“At a deserted rubbish tip miles from nowhere there’s a stirring.. a strange sound is heard and there’s movement below.. sensing danger the rats scurry into the safety of their holes.. all goes silent for few minutes then with a large crash tonnes of rubbish and dirt are thrown high into the air.. as the dust settles a robotic type creature, humunoid in appearance emerges from the depths..
The creature cranes its head skyward as the warm rays of the morning sun bathes it in light.. in a childlike way it tilts its head as if to understand this glowing phenomena.. Throwing back its head it lets out a spine chilling roar and with long mechcanical strides heads off in the direction of the sleeping city just miles away.. is this a new sentient being and what are the consequences for man.. Garbage man is alive and needs to feed?
The above is fiction but this is fact – Isn’t it amazing just how wasteful the human race is.. we live in a throw away world and think nothing of the consequences our impact has on our beautiful planet.. It will always be someone elses problem “why should I bother” most of us have thought at some point.. and i’m as quilty as the next man/woman in that respect..
We can only pass the buck to the next generation for so long before it will finally catch up with us and bite us on the arse.. This creature is at the “Eden Project” near St Austel in Cornwall (UK) he’s made entirely from rubbish taken from the local tip..
