Junk Space Time


Map, installation and performance. Black heart time capsules were fabricated, displayed in a kickoff installation in a loading dock in MIT’s building N51, and thrown in trash bins in Cambridge and Boston. They were subsequently collected, shipped and preserved in dumps from New Hampshire to South Carolina.

Materials: large-scale map; scavenged heavy-duty black trash bags, pillow stuffing, paper, plastic, and cardboard; lotus seeds; loading dock; trash bins; garbage trucks; waste stations; dumps
