We are already on record about our affection for Brooklyn artist Mac Premo’s work-in-progress The Dumpster Project. Why do we dig it so? Great images, great storytelling. More thumbs up for this sharp funny video explaining what Primo is up to. His quick recap:
1. I have archived much of my life through collected objects.
2. I am moving to a smaller studio, making it necessary that I get rid of a lot of these objects.
3. I will do so by using them as the raw material for one enormous collage you can literally walk inside of, created inside a 30-yard dumpster.
4. Oh, before I build that thing, I am going to catalogue around 500 of these objects by photographing them and recording a few words about its history.
