“REUSE” 

Miniature Rotating Sculpture: 6″ x 6.5″ square

Bobbi Mastrangelo’s Artist Statement

“REUSE” or Reclaimed Water treats and reuses household wastewater.  Our Solivita Community in Poinciana FL uses reclaimed water to irrigate the landscape. 

The official color for reclaimed water irrigation system construction is: Pantene Color # 512 for water covers, pipes and even the warning tape. They call it purple, but it looks more like magenta to me.

“Reuse” on a pentagon form is the third in a series of my miniature rotating sculptures. Two sides of the pentagon face the mirror. The important purple pipes indicate Reclaimed Water.

The Words: REduce, REuse and REcycle are reflected backwards, inspiring contemplation about Water Conservation.

    I was over to see the art exhibit at Mill Pond and I saw your piece. It is clever and well thought out!!! It is on a pedestal and looks very nice there. Actually it was the only sculpture there so it created the unusual. I liked it, Bobbi!

    There were several pieces that warranted attention and I spent much time looking!!! There are so many artists in the area here. To exhibit at The Mills Pond House would be worthwhile for them.
    Happy Thanksgiving,
    Marilyn

    I love the focus on reclaimed water. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this kind of attention on the topic. Some papermakers seek alternative sources, since we do use a LOT of water! Thanks for the inspiration, Bobbi.
