“Of all the garbage that threatens us, the most dangerous are the masses of discarded ideas.”
                                ----Bohumil Hrabal

Artifact: something characteristic of or resulting from a particular human institution, period, trend or individual.

The Aesthetics of Garbage is an ongoing research laboratory for projects that scavenge, explore and reflect on discarded ideas. Curated by FLOCK and lasting the duration of Prospect 4, artists Ann Glaviano, Nick Shamblott, Caitlin Adams, Milo Daemgen and Meryl Murman will engage with each other, collaborating artists and the public in critical conversations and experiments that respond to cultural artifacts, lost causes, abandoned plans, and forgotten ideas through various media.
