Recycled shadow’ is an installation undertaken by spanish architectural team Meva.
The artists fold hundreds of newspaper pages into paper windmills, which they then hang on nylon mesh into suspended sculptures that provide shade to passersby underneath.
This installation is a way to productively use old newspapers that otherwise would be discarded and ultimately end up in garbage cans. Meva initiated the project in response to research by london municipal centers that indicated that the daily distribution of free newspapers in the city creates over 100 extra tons of paper waste each year.
