Collages out of Metro Cards

Discarded MetroCards can be found strewn around any subway station, carelessly thrown aside by subway riders when they expire or funds are used up. Seeing this litter as the perfect medium, Boesch collects them, and gives them new life. Many of the artist’s collages are inspired by the MTA and subway transit system itself. 
Using the limited colors of the cards - blue, orange, yellow, black and white - Boesch has created a body of work that pays tribute to the subways and New York. LINK Nina Boesch
