Garbage Pillows

Garbage Pillows 2004 approximately 36 x 36 x 16 inches each
ferro cement & garbage.

As the stuffing to give them shape, each
garbage pillow is filled with non-recyclable garbage, collected
from my own household over a 6 month time period. Then,
each is encased in a layer of concrete to preserve it. My
intent is to show how much space this garbage would take up
if it had actually made it to a landfill.
