NYC Garbage as Art?
In this past hectic season of Christmas shopping and looking for something different to buy, I came across a sight titled “New York City Garbage”. Yep, one can buy garbage, but not just any, it's “New York City Garbage”, by Justin Gignac.
The artist has set up a simple and straightforward website that provides just enough information to peak ones interest. There’s a PDF Press Kit (lower left hand corner) that provides information about the artist, the pieces and publications/programs.
Within the PDF is the “Anatomy of New York City Garbage”, which provides a brief description of what the pieces consist of. Read the Anatomy on the image above.
Unfortunately, I never was able to order a piece, since I was on the hunt for a Nintendo Wii station for my nephew (which I was able to get at the last minute). But, I suppose the statement is true that one man’s garbage is another man’s treasure, or I guess in this case another man’s Art?
