“Ours is a culture and a time immensely rich in trash as it is in treasures.” ―Ray Bradbury

As if there were a shortage of litter, here we are spreading ‘Trash’ – a series by the longest-running recycler of refuse into art since Warhol’s fifteen minutes.

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” Andy Warhol

Picking up your paper trail to beautify your world is not only environmentally friendly, it is metaphorically significant.

“The fatal metaphor of progress, which means leaving things behind us, has utterly obscured the real idea of growth, which means leaving things inside us.” –Gilbert K. Chesterton

Metaphorically, you could pluck a treasure from thin air.

“Beauty is in the strangest places. A piece of garbage floating in the wind. And that beauty exists … everywhere. You have to develop an eye for it and be able to see it.” –Alan Ball

Maybe find a brilliant idea that you threw out.

“Paper and ink are all but trash, if I cannot find the thought which the writer did think.” –Walter Smith

Of course, a brown-bag lunch could come back on you too.

“I’m really into the recycling of art. That one piece of art inspires another piece of art, which inspires another piece of art. I really like that idea.” Mark Foster But it may contain your just deserts.

“Trash has given us an appetite for art.” —Pauline Kael

The literal significance of evolving trash into art is, it renews the way you look at what you keep.

“You don’t want to trash what you’ve done; that’s your history.” –Pat Benatar
