Watch your waste - Joost Bakker and the Greenhouse

I wrote a story for this morning's The Age about installation artist Joost Bakker and his intruiging project, The Greenhouse.

The Greenhouse is a self-sustaining exhibition venue that for two months will reside in the heart of Melbourne CBD, at Federation Square.

Here's the intro:
JOOST Bakker is fascinated by waste. The 35-year-old Melbourne florist has made a lifelong hobby out of finding unique ways to reuse second-hand materials. "My mum and dad and my brothers have always been sick of me collecting crap and bringing it home," he says. "They were like, 'Here he comes with more bloody rubbish'."
