One Man’s Trash

14 Feb

If you’ve ever felt that your artwork is just, kind of, junk, take a moment to step back and consider that this might not necessarily be a bad thing. The Artist in Residence program at the San Francisco Recycling Dump puts a whole new spin on the concept of recycling and reusing discarded materials.

After

Here, local artists are provided with access to a vast array of, well, trash. They are encouraged to consider the nature of waste and discarded goods while transforming them into art. The results are really rather inspiring. Click here to take a tour through this alternative to traditional sculpting- it just might inspire you to do a bit of dumpster diving of your own.
