SHOPPERS and office workers in Huddersfield are to be asked to root in their pockets for rubbish.
And it's all in the name of art.
Artists Pat Infanti, of Edgerton, and Matthew Gough are set to approach passers-by today, tomorrow and on Saturday.
They'll scour the town centre Piazza between 10am and 4pm for likely contributors.
Fine art graduate Matthew, 29, of Honley, says: "We're going to ask people if they have any unwanted bits of rubbish about their person that they'd be willing to hand over.
"We're going to use these bits to make a two-dimensional collage, by attaching what we're given to wooden boards.
"As we don't know what people will give us, we don't know what our finished work will be like!"
The artists will share their patch on Saturday with Green Party volunteers, who will be spreading a recycling message.
Matthew added that he hoped the project would raise the profile of artists in Huddersfield.
"Sometimes it feels like we're invisible," he says.
Matthew and Pat both have studios in Bates' Mill, Queen Street South, Huddersfield.
