Speculative Recontextulisation

On the 5/3/10 I happed upon the workshop/showroom of Alex Earl on sackville st in Collingwood after going to NSW leather.  This caught my eye and made me go and investigate further.  It is an interesting example of recontextualisation of post production waste - it becomes a piece of art when it is hung on the wall.  However, this is merely a speculation, something has been noticed, but it hasn't led to a design consideration.  It made me reflect on other examples of recontextulisation, with the question as to how many of these have much more going on other than change of context, and how legitimate this is as a design tool.
