Gorgeous Garbage

  • Posted by on December 30, 2010 in Art
  • C. Finley's Wallpaper Dumpsters project, spotted over at Inhabitat, brings attention to problems of overconsumption and waste, while making trash bins look, well, pretty. The beautified trash bins confer powerful ideas about femininity, beauty, and domesticity. “I like to think of these inventions as polite graffiti,” says the artist.

    For more on Finley and the project, watch her vid on how-to wallpaper a dumpster, read an interview at Dazed Digital, or visit her site.
