August 8 Glean

We are a tube, and our material life is a tube. Ideally we can be efficient in out use of those materials. And when our use is complete, some go to the Metro waste facility. They are transported to Arlington, Oregon and they are buried in the earth.

In a project called Glean, the waste people invite artists to make work from the materials passing through the waste facility. The project is gaining momentum with the arrival in the Metro area by waste hauler Recology, which has supported artists in residence sampling the waste stream in the Bay Area. Portland has its own Urban Ore: Cracked Pots Reclaim It!

The work is on display this evening by artists Sarah Bernstein, Francesca Berrini, Alyssa Kail, Michelle Licardo and Whitney Nye.
