The umbrella is one of our basic rain gears, as it protects us from getting wet. On the other hand, it also gives us the shade we need during summer, which made the umbrella an all time useful tool. However, the moment it become defective, majority of us prefer to just discard it and throw into our trash bin and eventually add up to our landfill. Artist Jean Shin, created the Penumbra, a colorful canopy made from orphaned umbrellas, which will obviously minimize the growth of landfills.
