Trash Art in Seattle

Dumpster Divers Evan Blackwell and Anne Baumgartner are the first 2 artists participating in the The Fremont Vacant Space Exhibition, an ongoing series aimed at utilizing vacant storefronts in Fremont for art installations in-between tenants:

We did not get a chance to see Britta Johnson in action, but we did read about her artistic endeavors at the Seattle South Recycling and Disposal Station, where visitors were asked for small pieces of trash as they waited on line to unload.  Britta animated the pieces at a small mobile animation stand and then returned them to their owners in time to be thrown away.  The resulting animation can be viewed HERE
