What to do with the empty film canisters? Look what a splendid idea RePlayGround had: a room divider!

They explain at website they spent about 3 months collecting over 1000 plastic canisters in NYC to make this room divider. The empty film canisters was strung together with elastic giving it flexibility to be rolled up when not in use and when shipped. And the nicest thing is you can alternate tops and colors to form patterns!

I’m still new in lomography and couldn’t gather enough empty containers to make me a divider, but I think it’s a valid and useful idea. And it’s a great way to recycle and let indoors more attractive!

    wouldn' that be cool in a photographer's studio or an art gallery? And if you ask nicely, your local photo lab is more than willing to give you all the cannisters you want. They usually just throw them in the trash.

    Ooooohhhhh -- just imagine them with colored lights or something like that in them. Yep, sounds like a neat project. :o)

    Has anyone come up for a use for the plastic wrapping off 120 rolls? I dont think they will have the structural integrity to form a room divider. maybe we could stickytape enough together to form a curtain...
    any ideas?
