Detritus, Dreamsnatcher, Spindle World
‘Trash’ is a misnomer, cultivated by a human sensibility that fails to recognize the physical and psychic usefulness of ’things’ we callously dismiss and discard. Obviously, we profligately generate piles of concentrated, toxic waste; less obviously, we ’trash’ cultural knowledge (e.g. from the world’s indigenous tribes) and various forms of life energy, including but not limited to humans. Technologies, and digitization especially, have provided us the means to be ever-more efficient in our ‘trashing’. Hopefully, ‘Detritus’, ‘Dreamsnatcher’ and ’Spindle World’ (inspired by the work of artist Susan Point) draw attention to, and help re-animate some things we thoughtlessly trash.
