What kinds of materials do most artists work with? Depending on the kind of artist, some might use paint and brushes, some might use ink or pencils, and artists who make sculptures might work with stone or clay.

The artist who made the sculptures in this picture chose something totally different. He made 1,000 sculptures out of trash. The kind of trash he chose to work with isn't the kind that rots away easily, like fruit or other foods. The kind of trash that he built his sculptures out of will be around for a long time.

Many artists say they want their art to make people think. What do you think an artist who makes sculptures out of trash wants to get people thinking about? (Kayleen Hartman, Staff Writer)

藝術家通常用何種材料製作藝術品?要看是哪一種藝術家?有些人用漆和刷子,有些人用墨水或鉛筆,而製作雕像的藝術家可能會用石頭或泥土。

製作照片中的塑像的藝術家則選用截然不同的材料,他用垃圾做了一千個塑像,他不是選用像水果或其他食物等容易腐壞的垃圾,他用來做塑像的垃圾可以維持一陣子都不會壞。

許多藝術家說要人們透過他們的作品思考,你覺得用垃圾做塑像的藝術家要人們思考什麼事? (翻譯:鄭湘儀)
