From Inhabitat: Artist Brandon Jon Blommaert's recycled trash robots (yes, they're real sculptures) lay waste to Photoshopped landscapes.

I am very pleased to be a part of the trend of art and recycling/recycled materials united to share a green message. Adding robots to the mix inevitably makes it full of WIN!
