Landfill Harmonic / The Recycled Orchestra

Landfill Harmonic / The Recycled Orchestra
This is 11 minutes of pure inspiration. “Landfill Harmonic” is an upcoming documentary about a tiny village called Cateura, built atop garbage, in Paraguay. More specifically it is about Luis Szaran, Favio Chavez Moran, and a group of children who play in an orchestra with instruments made of trash. I got a little emotional watching this.

Watch below!

Since 2001 Korean artist Yeesookyung has taken these porcelain fragments, creating beautiful, imperfect sculptures by fusing them with gold leaf in the Japanese tradition of kintsugi. See more images from “Translated Vase” below.
