Recycled Televisions as Art

14 05 2008

Check out one of the art exhibits currently on display at PowerHouse Arena here in DUMBO.

Those outdoor images seen on the TV screens are not moving images, they are photographs using the television boxes as frames; recycling the televisions that would have likely wound up in a landfill. Kudos to the artist for his creative recycling technique. (Its much more powerful in person – this picture doesn’t do it justice).

The Artist of this display, Christopher LaMarca focuses his work on documenting environmental issues through photography. This particular exhibit displays his recent work labeled “The Forest Defender Project.” This project discloses his account of documenting back-country activists in the Pacific Northwest since 2003 who focus their passion and energy in the battle to protect old growth forests against the harsh logging destroying them.
