Human Nature: a room full of white trash

Boston University's Gallery 5

855 Commonwealth Ave, Boston MA

February 2016

Human Nature is made entirely of trash.  The installation uses coffee cups, plastic bags, Styrofoam, used paper towels, and milk jugs to suggest what could be if people did not tear down nature to create garbage. The tranquil setting serves as a quiet space to reflect on nature.
