- Support Remix Chicago
- Be inspired by people who've turned upcycling into a fine art
- Promote them in any way I can!
This is my third year documenting Remix Chicago. But this year I had my photographer friend Johnny with me. A photographer who works with (wait for it) cameras he rebuilds himself using classic lenses. In this case, he shot only with lenses from the mid 60's. So this might be my most "meta" blog post ever!
Ready to see Remix through Johnny's 1960's glass eyes? Read on.
Kelly upcycles all things beer under the store name Kelchick.
The other thing? Those beer bottles that are now soap dispensers. She's figured out how to attach a screw on pump. And she also coats the bottle in resin so the label is water-safe. Rock on Kelly - we had so much fun at your store!
The night before I hit ReMix, I shared Lucid design's thimble planters on Instagram.
And then the marbled concrete planters and vases. Beautiful. And all true to their recycled molds! I love the 4-pack of "beer cans" (top_. And the bear vases below.
Kim's (Eyelidcanvas) work goes from strength to strength.

In Denise's hands, old wool sweaters find new life
Thanks Remix! I love the work I see and I'm so inspired by the artists I meet. Looking forward to next year.
And thank you Johnny for the wonderful pictures.
