This weathered can is among the many discards I retrieved from Antarctica as part of my Long View project. It’s the latest (but hardly the last) of my collection to be posted to the Waste Stream Reclamation category of my Long View blog along with the artifacts’ histories — or mysteries, as the case may be.
I’ve been incorporating the items into my larger artwork whose present incarnation will be exhibited in “Age of Wonder,” a group show opening September 30th in Redding CA. My piece will take the form of a free-standing installation in which Antarctic art and artifact engage each other in dialog. Look for a post and pics of the completed installation here and on the LV blog in the weeks to come.
