“As humans we live in a world full of “things.” There are so many objects surrounding us that overshadow our sense of uniqueness and our ability to marvel at the world as it vanishes in our everyday routine….“The extraordinary happens, if only we commit ourselves to see it through.” 

-Upcycle.17 juror Mariana Acosta Contreras- view her work here!


The speed of modern culture perpetuates mindless consumption and waste, unless the perception of these ordinary objects is extraordinarily reinvented. The over-abundance of things obstructs perception of the distinctive quality of objects and any sustained potential value they may have. This tendency poses a threat to ecosystems and cultural systems. The inquiry of the upcycle artist juxtaposes consumer waste and social value.

Upcycle.17 invites you to look around and alter your perceptions, to provoke a new value system, to question the impact of consumerism, and to reassemble waste into a purpose.

This year’s exhibit includes three categories: Aesthetical, Functional, and Conceptual.
