Sébastien Preschoux creates intricate installations in natural environments using hundreds of feet of multi-colored string. A quote from Preschoux from trendland:
Nowadays, the new generation disposes of images as a industrial rapidity and they are not asking themselves about where these things are coming from. Is it handmade or is it an electronic work? When they are faced with creating handmade work, they realize the labor and time it takes. The result is way more important than a printed work that is, easily reproduced. In my opinion, art makes sense if it is the result of the human hand.

Enormous and intricate installations by New York artist Phoebe Washburn
[...] Washburn has moved on to newsprint and scrap wood, but what her massive, room-size architectural sculptures all share is that they’re built from the scavenged bits of the urban world in which she lives. She prizes the castoff and mass-produced—the pencils, crates and day-old newspapers that none of us much cares about—and then sorts, layers and transforms them into what she calls “spectacles of environments.”
