    Watch the documentary WASTELAND!

    I think it looks like a decent photo aesthetically speaking, and its interesting to see all the waste we create and dump into the world.

    Mr. Buzzkill here. Since it's all cardboard in the bundle it's likely headed for recycling.

    Personally...I like it...very abstract..could be very telling about our throw away society....It's being slowly phrased out of existence and that's probably a good thing...BUD

    Speaking in terms of trash that's been made *into* art, there are some incredible pieces out there:

    "The Glass Rider" by Studio Re-Creation
    (made of broken drinking glasses and broken bottles of liquor)
    Photobucket

    "Night" and "Wind" by Sayaka Ganz
    (made of black, white, and clear plastic pieces)
    Photobucket

    And I would luuuuurv a photobook of that.

    I think that's great it will be recycled! The full bundle of flattened boxes was about 25 feet long. Took many pictures of it.

    I love the film Manufactured Landscapes - a beautifully shot documentary.

    Watched "Waste Land" today. Terrific documentary, and the people he chose to feature, the trash pickers, were stunningly beautiful. Excellent in every way!
