Artist Yuken Teruya creates stunning tree sculptures out of shopping bags and toilet paper rolls. By using Tiffany, Paul Smith, and fast food shopping bags, he reminds us that we are in a state of consumer over-indulgence, using up natural resources and need to reconnect to nature. Transforming these bags into the magical world that he creates inspires one to run for the nearest forest and take a little walk, spending time with the real thing.
