Souvenir

The detritus of life constitutes a modern souvenir, a memory in the form of waste that is the residue of experience. The basics of feeding and clothing oneself contribute to an inevitable collection of discarded souvenirs. Stockpiled in landfills and in the ocean, this detritus forms a long-term cultural collection that reflects consumer choices. I am interested in taking an active role in this passive form of cultural accumulation by making conscious choices about detritus and formulating those choices into art. For this one-month project my family made every effort to reduce our trash/souvenirs.

This pilot project is documented on: http://souvenir-lul.blogspot.com/
