|The Chicken Project by Kieren Jones|
With DIY farming and urban gardening continuing to grow in popularity all over the world, now is a good time to remind yourself of the best examples of the practice - and familiarise yourself with the latest projects too.
HBL loves: The Chicken Project by Kieren Jones, which saw the artist utilise every single part of a chicken. Bones were turned into salt spoons and wishbones while skin was tanned and turned into a jacket with a feather downing.
