Photo of the Day: Elegantly Wasted


Our Photo of the Day series this week shares photos from the past weekend’s Concrete and Grass Music Festival in Shanghai.

In frame: This year’s festival partnered with World Cleanup Day to try and leave the site as they found it and cut down on the amount of litter usually generated by such events. In addition to recycling stations across the festival grounds, there were some creative uses of trash too, like this wireframe where people could pick up plastic bags and collectively build a piece of art that grew as the festival unfolded.

Check out our Instagram for more photos from the event!
