Disposable Monuments

This project took shape as part of the RAIR residency in Philadelphia. RAIR gives artists access to materials moving through the waste stream at a major recycling facility in Northeast Philadelphia. Disposable Monuments evolved in response to the national dialogue around the removal of Confederate monuments from public places, and became a series of monument-forms created from materials reclaimed from the waste stream. The smaller pallet of obelisks exists as a permanent sculpture, while the process of tipping the large obelisk is recorded only as a series of photographs.
