Abundance: Dawson City Trash Project

Monday, November 10, 2008


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.
