In the Aesthetics for Design course, one of our projects was to “upcycle” (recycling with an upgrade) materials for an artistic purpose. I decided that instead of sending my used salsa and pasta sauce jars to be broken down at a recycling facility, I could upcycle them into terrariums. The right combination of plans, twigs, mosses, and dirt can create a self-contained micro-ecosystem, cycling it’s own nutrients with nothing but solar input.
