Take In/Push Out

Take In/Push Out is a new series of drawings which deal with the cyclical consuming and rejecting of products and packaging. Relying on contour line, I am creating a fragmented topography of the refuse and household items I observe. Although the piles of trash on the curbs are transient they are almost immediately replaced after collection. In this way are like permanent feature of the landscape.

Upon moving to New York I noticed there are no back lanes and that businesses, restaurants, and private residences put their trash out for collection along the front curb of the street. This makes the cycle of consumption and rejecting increasingly visible.
