Developer David Belt and his company, Macro Sea have created Glassphemy, a glass recycling project in New York, which, in their own words, is a “psychological recycling experiment”. Glassphemy takes the form of a 20-foot-by-30-foot clear box, with high walls made of steel and bulletproof glass. People stand on a platform at one end of the box and hurl glass bottles at others who are safely shielded behind toughened glass. As the bottles smash, the vibration and sound of the breaking glass triggers the flashing of artfully designed lights. The broken glass collected will then be recycled on site. Mr. Belt says that recycling had become boring and they have tried to make it more exciting by saving the environment as well as helping people release their anger. Glassphemy opens officially on 20 May 2010 to invited guests.
