Definitely Upcycling

Dan makes do with the things others throw away and uses clever tricks by repeating patterns to satisfy our need for predictability in the spaces we live in. But Dan has little sympathy for those who insist on perfection, "Looking up you see there are bulges and pokes and sags and so forth... Well if that ruins your life, well then you shouldn't live there".
