"stressing each person's role in producing garbage..." like the artist's incredibly wasteful simplistic project which achieves nothing.

really? really!?


The garbage truck project in particular is obnoxious in its simplistic inelegance. A giant fucking mirror? On a garbage truck? The project is a childish science fair project that would have been more effective as a flip-lid kitchen garbage can with a foot pedal and a hand mirror sitting on the lid. At least then there would be the implication of action on the part of the viewer, who is most likely not directly involved in the operation of the garbage truck. The object seems arbitrary, and the scale of the work is awkwardly large; too big for subtlety and not big enough to be spatial. Too much material use for very little concept.
