Art of the Week: Please Recycle

Please Recycle incorporates a digital print of Chuck's hands reaching out from a recycle bin as photographed during Artist's Day at Circus Flora on June 15, 2013.  The photos have been inserted into cleaned recyclable plastic bottles with labels removed, with the end result touching on similar environmental themes as Water:Life & Cast Off.

The first edition includes 14 bottles found during a walk from my house to the grocery store and back, less than two miles.  And there were many more bottles that I did not collect, already too crushed & filthy to gather easily and ill-suited to this project.  All of these bottles could have been recycled but instead were found littering the street among all sorts of other refuse.
