Talking trash (about design)

Adrian K

Medium: 45-gallon biodegradable, scented TRASH bags; video
Dimensions: Variable


TRASH: anycoloryoulike is a vivid art intervention for urban beautification and environmental awareness. The project consists of select city blocks in which new artist-created bags transform standard piles of trash into colorful sculptures through the participation of local business owners and residents. The first intervention took place in NYC during the summer of 2008. For each installation, free bags were distributed to participants with directions to use the bag on a set date.
