The Architecture of Trash
Urban Omnibus talked to Spertus about the exhibit:
"UO: What do you think this has to teach us about our attitudes towards infrastructure, in terms of both the system itself and also investments in large-scale systems, something we're finding politically difficult at the moment.
JS: One goal I have with this exhibition is to give people a way of conceiving this system. Garbage collection is invisible. You see the trucks but you don't see the logistics network and infrastructure. It's very difficult to get a grasp on it, whereas with a park, a tram, a new building or a school, it's very concrete – this is what it is and this is what we need to get there."
