Local Project is pleased to present “TRASH”, an exhibition that provokes a conversation about the environment through art. We ask the question, “what is our relationship with trash?” How could something that was once loved, treasured or used be tossed away? Can we give these objects a second chance and utilize them to create something new and beautiful? Visitors are invited to view our eclectic collection of objects, assemblages, and creations. This exhibition was curated by Tim Kelly.

“Plastic Swim” is an interactive XR experience and pool of plastic waste consumed by the artist and her family in one year. The experience reflects the impact of our throw away culture on our waterways. The title references backyard parties as well as the installation’s dense accumulation of the materials, and draws upon imagery of the North Atlantic garbage patch. When immersed in the XR world, the viewer will find themselves in a glimmering but treacherous game, swimming through an aquatic world dense with plastic. When they have accumulated enough information about plastic consumption by interacting with illuminated debris they can resurface buoyed by the specifics of their newly acquired environmental awareness.
