In perhaps one of the best incidents of upcycling, members of a Japanese artist collective known as Kingyobu are taking old telephone booths and turning them into goldfish tanks. The group cleans and seals the booths, fills them with water, and adds bubblers to create rapid circulation, which allows the booths to hold fish. Just like an aquarium, maintanence is performed from the top of the former phone booth. So far three of these installations have been placed in the city of Osaka, Japan.
