People are not disposable. TRASH engages viewers for one second, allowing just enough time for them to recognize, either intentionally or subliminally, who they choose to discard. In the illustration that progresses through this flip book, the trash transforms into a discarded person. I wanted to draw attention to the people we throw away everyday, kick to the curb and expect others to collect and remove from our sight. All artist proceeds from the sale of TRASH go towards human reclamation.
