Hiroshi Fuji’s, “Toysaurus”

Japanese artist Jiroshi Fuji’s art revolves around “ways of transforming existences that are not valued by society into special existences.” One of the ways he does this is by using recycled materials in his art and inviting others—kids, artists, the public in general—to participate in its creation. He started a toy exchange system called “Kaekko” 13 years ago with over 5000 events having taken place in over 1000 locations across Japan and other countries as well.

Fuji brought together over 50,000 toys collected over the years in the “Kaekko” project and created an installation that included works such as this “Toysaurus” made from the recycled toys.
