Cigarette Butt Street Rug

Puerto Rican artist Jesus Bubu Negron commissioned street cleaners to collect used cigarette butts which he then turned into a woven carpet. The art project was presented at the Sharjah Biennale documenting the street cleaners at work and helpers fabricating the carpet. The carpet itself uses the paper of the cigarettes unrolled and layered on top of each other. The design utilizes the yellow and white pieces from the paper to create a pattern similar to a woven textile rug.
