In foundations, we spent a class talking about collections, and how collections correlate with art. We were all asked to pick a word from from a container and then go out into Alfred and make a collection of items that match the word.

Then I thought of the saying “One mans trash is another mans treasure” SO naturally I walked around and picked up trash off the streets for an hour. (Also shout out to me for being ecofriendly and making art simultaneously.)

Also, I found out that someone else had the same word that I did. IMG_3761
