Baltimore Trash Talk Rivers of Recycling - Artscape, Park & Colleges
The images in this project are from 5 different installations involving recycling, litter and pollution. I began creating these installations after launching Baltimore Trash Talk - an Anti-Litter initiative. These Rivers of Recycling have served to raise awareness of how much we litter, of our consumption of one-use/plastic items and our need for legislation and education regarding these issues.
The first two Rivers were planned, marketed and executed solely by myself and the data collected was used to testify in front of the House and Senate in Annapolis in support of Bottle Deposit Legislation (take your bottle back to a store, get 5 cents back per bottle).
The third River was installed at Artscape. Flags and river planning by BTT(myself). River wasexecuted with the help of Clean Corps and BOPA volunteers.
The fourth River took place at Johns Hopkins University as part of a thesis exhibition for MICA curatorial grad, Christopher Beer. See project pictures for further details/description.
The fifth river took place at Loyola University. See project picture Digital Collage of a scanned deer skull.
