Two more topics to go, and I haven't integrated my start number into any photo so far. The best bet was "minimalism", but I missed that opportunity, now I've got “upcycling" and "seduction" to work with. Good luck with that. 
Upcycling... where do I find something that is made of re-used stuff and now costs more? I'd read about some furniture they make out of refurbished old stuff, and it's now very expensive, but I have no idea where to find something like that. In this part of wotn everything is brand-new...
Wait, I'd found out about this Hermes collection made out of left-overs, "Petit h. There must be a Hermes store in Zürich - looking it up. I could try going there, unless - is there really nothing here? There, it says "Fine Art Shop". You find a lot of upcycling in art, let's see. The curator is welcoming me, asking what I'd be interested in. "Do you have anything involving Upcycling"?
She's puzzled, "no, unfortunately", but right when I'm about to leave, she says - "well, except for one thing maybe, there's one piece here, I can have you talk to the artist."
Susan Buchser is her name, and she explains how this piece is a metaphor of her life in Switzerland, with pieces from her wedding, some of her art works all arranged inside this viled box which you can look intop only through a crystal. If you pull a certain string you hear a cowbell.
Right - question one, do the "ingredients" cost less than the total art work? After a short calculation - yes. 
Question no. 2: hw to photograph it? She tries to help me illuminating the box with her phone lantern... or maybe pulling this string? Wait, that gives a nice pose. I'm not sure how much people will understand what this has to do with "upcycling", but - from last time I remember we can tell the story of the photos at the end, and the story is all that matters in this case.
