The Geographies of Trash installation was exhibited at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning Liberty Research Annex, November 16 – December 16, 2012. The five projects - Cap, Collect, Contain, Preserve, and Form- form the sides of an 6x6x6 feet cube installation. Representing the scale of the township, each side of the cube hosts a satellite image of context printed on acrylic, an aluminum etching of the site of concern, and a yellow resin cast model of the proposed project. By making trash visible and formal, the project aspires to engage both disciplinary and public debates on waste systems.

Installation Details:
Dimensions: 6 x 6 x 6 feet
Materials: 3/8 inches steel rods, acrylic panels, aluminum panel, resin.
