Sziget Festival Colosseum, Made out of 700 Pallets and 65 Feet Diameter
This artwork for Sziget Festival in Budapest was inspired by the ancient amphitheater. It was made out of 700 pallets, and using four m³ wood. The 5 meter tall Colosseum outside diameter is 20 (65 feet), de inside diameter is 18 meters, and its weight is around 20 tons. Szőke Gábor Miklós sculptor’s huge animal sculptures complete this unusual artwork. They made miniature Kinect installations inside of the Colosseum using projectors.
With an estimated 2 billion pallets being used every day, and many more sitting around, no wonder so many projects have been done using pallets. Here are 1001 ways to recycle, upcycle, reuse or repurpose pallets! If you are a pallet upcycler, do not hesitate to send us your work, we will be happy to showcase it to the world!
