The Mission: To create an interactive, temporary community out of trash.
This is a commissioned art installation piece for the C-Street Jam. This takes place June 26th on Commercial street.
We are a group of local artists, creative and radical thinkers and doers, who have joined together to make a city entirely out of discarded materials.
The purpose is tri-fold…One, to make art on a collaborative and community level. Two, to be interactive and stimulate ideas, dialogue and imagination. Three, to educate and inform the public of the environmental issues we face, while encouraging individual, local and global acts
Trash City is inspired by a future without the environmental luxuries we have today. A DIY culture, a radical revolution where citizens are forced to subsist off the accumulated trash and waste of their predecessors. This village, although bleak in theory, is a testament to the human will and creative spirit. It is a community where self-expression and self-reliance is celebrated. It’s an interpretation of a rising up out of the “ashes” and making something kick-ass with them.
