In 2009 I made one of the biggest changes in my life, I switched the green for the gray,
I moved from San Jose, Costa Rica, to New York, USA. When I say "green" and "gray", I
am not only referring to the real jungle versus the concrete jungle, but also to the different
ays in which people interact with each other, and how differently they consume and throw
away in these two cities. I strongly believe that we are more what we throw away than
what we consume. I see trash bags on the streets as portraits of the people who filled them
in, I use plastic bags as a way to tell a story about a particular place in a particular time,
I see trash as everyone's resource rather than everyone's problem and I see inspiration
where people do not even look.
LESS WASTE, MORE ART!
