Amanda seems intent on creating something beautiful from the stuff we all receive daily in our lives. I do admire her attitude on this. As the old saying goes "One man's junk, is another man's art" (something like that). I must admit, however, I do not understand the zeal of some in turning waste into serious projects. Taking care of waste for the sake of society is already done pretty efficiently. Does is really matter that much if we become "experts" at waste elimination? casino
