Neozoon: Upcycling Old Animal Fur into Urban Art

>> It's been a while since my last post. I caught the flu and spent the last week or so in bed and on the couch.... that was no fun at all. Now I'm back and feeling much better, so I thought I'd share this very interesting site that I came across today called Neozoon. Neozoon is greek for "new" and "animal", and the neozoon artists explain in this video that neozoon means animals introduced by humans into a foreign habitat. These masked artists upcycle old animal fur clothes into urban art that are meant to make a statement: in the case of these bears in berlin, it is about the lives of animals taken from their natural habitats and confined in zoos.

I thought that what they were doing with recycled fur was amazing, and that it should be shared, so here it is! More amazing pictures:
