A unique exhibition, full of exhibits made of recyclable materials, is located in the picturesque, old part of the town of Xanthi, Greece.

The house consists of a workshop, a gift shop and an exhibition. In the exhibition hall you can see sculptures made of garbage, which in a suitable light produce recognizable objects, paintings or personalities in the form of shade. All images, against the backdrop of mysterious music and lighting, make the experience even more exciting.

Triantafyllos Vaitsis - the creator of this interesting art is an artist and engineer. He was very polite and for us was a surprise how he didn't charge us while entering– only after we look at it and if we are satisfied with what we have seen. Well, we were satisfied and we appreciated it. After looking at the exhibits, he started asking us questions, what we saw and what we did not. The philosophy of his works is close to how we can interpret the different situations, facts and objects.

“That we see is always less than that we look…“
