Full Basket

Public art installation

American University

Full Basket is a large container filled with textile waste. Waste is one of many environmental issues that artists currently address in their work, issues that are obvious to most thinking citizens because it plagues our species virtually everywhere. The sculpture presents an enormous amount of fabrics and other textiles in a simple and elegant fashion, with the intent of making meaning that otherwise would not exist.  The development and power of simple form is paramount.
