Every time I throw garbage down the chute to the incinerator, I worry that I’ve thrown away something I value. Now, at least, I have a photographic memento

An exquisite tension between garbage and humankind. This work explores the fundamental properties of trash.

That looks curiously like my own NYC garbage. Ahhh, nostalgia!

I can smell it from here.

Why is NJ sanitation delivering their garbage to NYC? Is it a sharing thing?

Another thing – if you are going to submit these photos to the Guggenheim be sure to titled them as follows:
Untitled 1, Untitled 2, Untitled 3, etc. you will make loads of money but never putting a title on your work.

Bravo! How long is this showing in place? I simply must make travel plans to see it, which I haven’t done since The Guggenheim had their motorcycle exhibit years ago…

I saw the traveling exhibit — complete with the “vomit in the McDonalds bag” — a few years ago in Chicago.

Garbage or no (and in DC we have plenty), your recent posts are making me want a NY trip sometime soon!

is crime THAT bad in NYC now that the garbage cans have to be chained down?

Churlita – his mom would say “Neilochka look at that trash, what a shame all this garbage on the street. I remember when….”

Glad to see a little white trash–y’know, they don’t have as much of that here in Brussels as they do in the South and I get homesick.

My Favorite Christmas Treat
My family is from Ohio and my Mom always made these at Christmas. Now I make them with my son. Here in Nashville people call them Peanut Butter Balls-which is so wrong in so many ways!
1 1/3 stick butter
1 lb powdered sugar
1 1/2 c Creamy Jiff Peanut Butter
1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips
-Melt butter and add to powdered sugar-mix until smooth.
-Add peanut butter to the butter/suger mixture and mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
-Chill the mixture for at least 30 minutes-roll into balls about 1 in. place on a cookie sheet and chill once again for at least an hour.
-Melt chocolate chips in either a double boiler or the microwave. Using a toothpick-dip the ball into the chocolate-only covering about 2/3-so it resembles a buckeye nut. Place these on a cookies sheet covered with wax paper. Once you remove the toothpick-purest mush the top to cover the hole. Into the freezer for about 30 minutes and then store them in an air tight container in the fridge or freezer. YUMMY! They are an easy treat to make-a bit time consuming but well worth the effort.

My theory is that New Yorkers don’t even see the garbage any more.
Here in Paris, it gets picked up every day. Eh oui! The French get something for those high taxes!
