Hunter-Gatherer, 2007

#2 harvested plastic, 21’L x 18’W x 24″H

This installation is a 21′ landscape made from plastic milk and water cartons scavenged from the streets of Brooklyn and the Town Recycling Center of Peterborough, NH. The salvaged material is reconfigured into a micro-world of satellite towers, abandoned oil rigs, highways and other structures.

Small armed puppet figures guard the infrastructure and the resources throughout the landscape. Hunter-Gatherer was installed at the Humanities Gallery of Long Island University, Brooklyn, NY.
