RECYCLE SERIES 2023
THE RECYCLE SERIES WAS A COMMUNITY ART PROJECT IN BRIDGER-TETON NATIONAL FOREST. CHARACTER DRAWINGS AND MIXED MEDIA ART PIECES USING RECYCLABLE ITEMS AS SOURCE MATERIAL WERE DISPLAYED IN EMPLOYEE DINING.

EXPERIENCING A LOT OF FRUSTRATION WITH THE COMMUNITY'S LACK OF ATTENTION TO RECYCLING, I CREATED THIS SERIES TO SHOWCASE WAYS TO UTILIZE RECYCLABLE AND LANDFILL MATERIALS IN ARTWORK. INFORMATION PLACARDS WERE DIRECT.
Our planet is going to be Wall-E meets Interstellar soon and we are on the brink of our 6th mass extinction thanks to human activity. I travel a lot and see the effects of climate change in different communities, most dramatically affected has been our coastal states. Because of these observations and wanting to keep our planet healthy, I try to encourage others to make choices that positively affect our planet by modeling behavior and through my artwork.

If you weren’t aware, we do not recycle plastic and paper at the lodge. Both of these recyclable items wind up in our landfills which contributes to negative impacts on nature, wildlife, and humans.
Please think before you purchase items bound in plastic while living/working here, it will just go into the trash and then into our landfills which then has a detrimental death cycle of its own: plastic does not decompose and throughout the years the sun’s radiation breaks it down into microplastics that get into our water sources harming both humans and animals. For sea creatures, the consumption of microplastics leads to death by starvation as they cannot digest food. Microplastics have even been discovered in our rainwater.
