So another idea is to collect all the white trash out of ours, and anyone who is willing to save it for me to turn into a sculptural form and install it in The See Here Gallery.  I’m imagining it pouring from ceiling to floor.

Why white:

  • I’m interested in the process of selection of how to address and direct one’s energy to the myriad of environmental concerns in our world today
  • Taking a closer look at the white wall white plinth gallery aesthetic
  • The thought that white trash is pure pollution in our consumer throw-away society
  • an investigation into the colour white
  • The socio-political dilemma

A simple google of white trash sculpture too me to the Trash Glass sculptural  works of Matt Eskuche : www.matteskuche.com (top)

Khalil Chishtee’s life-size plastic bag sculptures www.chalilchishtee.com

And then there is the heartfelt socio-political work of the artist/photographer Chris Jordan based in Seattle, Washington who does portraits of mass consumption: www.chrisjordan.com.  Take a look at his TED Talk from 2008 https://www.ted.com/talks/chris_jordan_pictures_some_shocking_stats.
