Abundance: Dawson City Trash Project

by


dawson3 This summer, artist Max Liboiron built a large-scale diarama of and about trash in the Yukon Territory of Canada.  Using trash from the local landfill, she created an incredible artistic and educational space mapping dumping grounds past and present in Dawson City.  The result is a deceptively simple landscape that speaks to our complicated relationship with what we throw away, and where we throw it.  Here are a few images ripped from the project site.

    Thanks for the interest in my project. FYI, in any future posts, please change the pronouns to “she”. I’m female. 🙂

    Ha. I am terrible when it comes to assuming gender based on names. Apologies, Max!

    When I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from
    now on every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.
    There has to be a means you can remove me from that
    service? Thanks!
