I saw this today via Colossal (thanks to the Ecological Society of America for posting a link!): giant fish sculptures made of plastic bottles at the 2012 Rio 20+ U.N. Conference on Sustainable Development! I’m not sure I need to spoil this with words, so here are the fantastic photos:
Curiously, I can’t find any information out there about who the actual artist is – almost all sources attribute this work to the conference itself. Any ideas out there?

Hey! I found it on the web
Brasilian Artist, Vik Muniz.
Thanks! I feel like I looked everywhere for the artists name! They credited the photographer a lot but mot the artist. Great job finding it!
So this is the Brazilian way to do recycling? Anyway, these are amazing pictures.
Wow I love this! Art + science + sculpture – three of my favourite things!
