Toilet Paper Roll Trees

Photo from Design Sponge

This is the coolest upcycle of a toilet paper roll that I have ever seen.  It is by artist  yuken teruya 
and this exhibit is called "Corner Forest"  

From his site he describes the work:
"Toilet rolls sprouting spreading branches are hung to create a “forest” hanging on the wall or hanging down from the ceiling. There is a moment when the hanging cut-out-parts start holding their branches and leaves on their own strength. It is as if I’m helping the paper awakens its ability to be an individual tree."
Do you know of any other cool projects you or an artist you admire have made out of upcycled/recycled items?
