Using material from scrap and waste Christopher has explored how the view on waste material change if they become a part of exclusive furniture, in this case a bench. The top of the bench is made by waste which has been processed, altered and rearranged in a new form. Unwanted Toys asks questions of what defines the value of an object, what defines aesthic value and how value is affected by placing waste objects in a new context.
