The Power of Sheffield's Waste: Exhibiting an Art and Geography Collaboration

Waste of the World brought together High Storrs School in Sheffield and Veolia Environmental Services, which manages the city's municipal waste, in a project that combined art and geography to encourage children to consider 'what happens to our waste'?

Two groups were challenged to use recyclable and non-recyclable materials to produce sculptures to represent the household waste stream. They produced some fantastic fish which were exhibited in the city centre at Sunwin House on The Moor, a shopping precinct in Sheffield city centre, during Festival of Social Science week: 12th-21st March 2010. They were displayed swimming along the waste stream either to the incinerator or to be recycled. Those recyclable fish can be refashioned into a whole host of new products from newspapers, cans and bottles through fleece clothes, construction materials and street furniture to the very bins that collect waste. Those going to the incinerator are not wasted either, they will be used to generate electricity, which is exported to the national grid, and hot water which pumped around the city to heat 130 local buildings such as the Town Hall, Ponds Forge and the Winter Gardens.

Energy, new products and art-work -- all showing the Power of Sheffield's Waste

fashion // Trashion Fashion Show 2011

How do you make used coffee filters, old shopping bags, disposed drinking straws, discarded turkey inseminators and tin cans more flashy than trashy? You commission a talented group of artists and designers to create haute couture from the refuse. The Sonoma Community Center did just that and the event culminated in their first annual Trashion Show and Accessory exhibit.

In the visualization above, each of the white dots is a piece of orbital garbage in Low Earth Orbit (1,240 miles above the planet) that NASA is currently tracking. ScienceNews posted an article about "the largest junkyard in the solar system," explaining how the trash is monitored and why it can be incredibly dangerous. The feature is in their "For Kids" section but I found it quite informative myself

Built from Plastics: "Dress for Excess," a performance for the Beaux Arts Ball 2011

A performance with students at the Beaux Arts Ball of Georgia Tech's School of Architecture.
At many stores shopping bags are still for free, which contributes to unnecessary waste. The performance starts with a pile of shopping bags that unfold into a large blanket pushed up by the students underneath. At the end of the performance the large blanket transforms into a dress, suggesting recycling. Gernot Riether
