Recyclosaurus Comes to Clough Commons
A Recyclosaurus has taken up residence on the first floor of Clough Commons, and members of the campus community may have unknowingly contributed to its creation.
The piece is made of recycled plastic bottles by Turkish artist Baris Karayazgan, who created it as part of an art therapy project with the Art Reach Foundation and the Clarkston Community Center. Georgia Tech’s Office of Solid Waste Management and Recycling donated around 1,000 of the 10,000 bottles needed for the project — so if you recycled a plastic bottle on campus recently, it may now be part of the Recyclosaurus.
More than 325 children enrolled in a summer camp with the Clarkston Community Center participated in the creation of the Recyclosaurus over the course of two weeks.
The Recyclosaurus will be on display at Clough Commons through Monday, July 23.
