20 Creative Ways to Reuse Egg Cartons Seen On CoolPictureGallery.blogspot.com Or www.CoolPictureGallery.com

Did you know the egg carton was invented in 1911 in British Columbia in an attempt to solve a dispute between a farmer and a hotel owner who kept on blaming one another when the farmer’s eggs often arrived broken? Probably not.

But approximately 100 years later, egg cartons are obvious items in almost every modern house and a significant portion of the trash we generate.

Yet, from modern art and high-class lighting sets to beds for cats, seed starters and toys - there are countless of ways egg cartons can be reused and otherwise useful. CultCase has photo-listed 20 of them here, but we know there are more.

If you know of any others and have some photographs please do feel free to drop us a line anytime and we may publish them here.

1. Eggcubism Village Party

20 Creative Ways to Reuse Egg Cartons Seen On CoolPictureGallery.blogspot.com Or www.CoolPictureGallery.com

Completed in December 2008 and titled Village Party this new monumental masterpiece by Dutch artist Enno de Kroon is sized 154 x 209 x 24 cm and made of acrylic and egg cartons.

(Re)using ordinary egg crates for canvas De Kroon makes spectacular “two-and-a-half” dimensional paintings in a style he defines as Eggcubism. Above: A frontal view studio shot of Village Party. Below: details (cut by the artist).

According to De Kroon:

“The egg carton works came about out of my previous work where I find the relationship between the viewer and the piece as an object to be of great importance. I’ve always played with distortions of perspective, which puts the viewer on the wrong foot and makes them conscious of their manner of observing.

The way we see things is so conditioned and decides what our minds eventually see in something. The egg cartons had been lying around my studio for some time ready for me to be painted upon, but it took some courage before I could take the plunge. It also took a while to come up with a product I was satisfied with.”

No textual explanations had been made available about Village Party so far but, since we asked, De Kroon did provide us with a few words of clarifications about the inspirational roots of it. “Village Party was inspired by open air dinner parties that take place in the village streets of Provence in the south of France.” Says De Kroon “it is a mixture of different perspectives one can have of such parties and the special social relations they involve. Someone has described my technique as “exploding” perspective. I don’t know about that but they are related to Pieter Breugel works.”

According to De Kroon he did use any real photos of the described village party dinners but he did send us a snapshot of the painting ‘Peasants Wedding’ by Pieter Brueghel the Elder.

The concept of "recycling" usually refers to the breaking down of used items into raw materials and then using those materials to make new items. In contrast, the concept of "reuse" includes both using an item again for its original function, as well as for "new-life reuse" where it is used for a brand new function. "ReUsing is similar to Recycling, only we aren't getting rid of things, we are finding new uses for them" explains INSPIRE, administrator of The ReUse Project group on Flickr that serves as an International hub for reuse artists. The following are 7 outstanding examples of creative approaches to the art of junk.

1. Two-and-a-half Dimensional Eggcubism Paintings by Enno de Kroon



Leading both recycling art and cubism into the 21st century Enno de Kroon from The Netherlands uses ordinary egg crates instead of canvas to make spectacular "two-and-a-half" dimensional paintings in a style he defines as Eggcubism. "The waves of the eggcartons limit the viewer's perception" explains de Kroon, making him "aware of his positioning towards the image." Classroom is a mega in-progress Eggcubism painting on which de Kroon has been working over the past 4 months. "I don't know the exact size of painted surface, but it has to be at least in the order of 40-50 square meters" he estimates. Above is a snapshot of the Classroom March 27 stage: Acrylic paint on eggcrates, 217 x 245 x 10 cm.

The original intention here was to show local artisans how reusing materials could become a source of income. Yet, this quickly turned into a passion for Salvadorean designer Eugenio Menjivar. Dancer includes three shades made from egg cartons.

The shades sit slightly askew, dancing, on a recycled iron base and held in place with recycled iron rods. You can get your own Dancer in three different colors including violet, lime and black. Via apartmenttherapy.com

After a few days out of the box, Flickr user Kimberly Jennery was already used to finding those three clumped together in the “human bed”. The other day she came home and found them all clumped in an egg carton. Goofies indeed.

Experts say Egg cartons are not very good as sound proofing devices but this is still one of the most common ways to reuse them.

It might not work so well but admit it looks pretty cool.
