THE WASTE OF ONE YEAR (2008). The project began with the commitment to save all of my trash for 1 year and make art out of it. On Day 2, when my housemate made me dinner, I was posed with an expectable but surprising question: is the waste created hers or mine? What followed was a yearlong, multimedia research investigation in the limits of personal responsibility as a strategy for confronting ecological crisis-- yearning to articulate the many ways we are all interconnected in our perpetuation and struggle against the crisis of our physical world.
