Trash Nesting
Philadelphia's Art in the Open
These interactive sculptures on Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River waterfront are made from chain-link fencing and scavenged plastic bags. In this work, I explored the plastic waste nesting materials used by urban birds and encouraged play among adults and children. Visitors could weave in their own materials and hang out in the nests while negotiating the ideas of garbage, danger, bird intelligence, and the meaning of "clean" vs. "dirty."
