Today Trashbaby was inspired. She went to the local dump, found some cool trash and made art.
She asked around until she found a gallery to show her work, then invited a bunch of people to the opening. A few came.
Miss Foxy was the new art teacher from San Francisco. She really liked what Trashbaby had done and invited her to speak to her class.
Energized by all that, Trashbaby decided to make some phone calls and organize a street action to raise awareness about trash.
After a bunch of phone calls, e-mails and pestering people on facebook, the big day arrived: Trashbaby and her crew hit the street.
The carnival atmosphere was great – the best slogans were “bla bla bla” and “There is no planet B.” Recycling was on everyone’s mind.

After the deep depression and the happy green dreams, Trashbaby awoke feeling better than ever. She took a walk to the local dump and that’s when it hit her…
She figured she’d better do some reading, so she went to her fave secondhand bookstore and got some books.
She went to see her friends Helga and Bambi to ask if they’d like to form a collective. They were down.
Before making a new facebook page to organize the collective, Trashbaby checked out what was already out there.
She decided to take a look at her own trash to see what she could do better.

Trashbaby has some spare time today so she decides to surf the net.
She discovers some pretty heavy stuff, like the toxic e-waste at Agbogbloshie…
… and landfills all over the planet. She contemplates harakiri but stabs a trash bag instead.
She steps away from the computer and goes outside to stare at the sky. For hours.
She drifts into a deep sleep and dreams happy dreams of floating in green water.
What will happen when she wakes up?

Ok, this is my week of virtual art residency here, and as promised, the theme is trash. Check back every day to find out what Trashbaby’s been up to. Here’s what she did today.
First, she traveled to a beautiful island.
Next she smoked some cigarettes.
A trip to the grocery store was in order…
… then some dumpster diving.
After all that excitement, Trashbaby was tired – time for a nap.

Yay! I’ve just booked a little tent for a virtual art residence here:
My residency is for week 37 (13-19 September) – I’ll be doing something on the theme of trash.
