The Wooster Collective

“The Wooster Collective was founded in 2001. This site is dedicated to showcasing and celebrating ephemeral art placed on streets in cities around the world.”

“Wouldn’t it be cool if more people picked up a marker or a spray can and made their trash (or that of others) a little more fun, interesting and creative while it sits on city streets before it’s hauled off to the dump[?]”

HA Shult’s Trash People

“In 1996, when HA Schult has installed one thousand life sized ‘Trash People’, in the Amphitheatre of Xanten, the idea was born to send them around the world.”

“We live in the trash time: we produce trash and we become trash. Therefore HA Schult’s ‘Trash People’ are images of ourselves.”

“LONDON (Reuters) – A cleaner at London’s Tate Britain modern art gallery threw out a bag of garbage which formed part of an artwork because it was thought to be trash, British newspapers reported Friday.”

” The newspapers said the spokesman would not reveal how much the bag had cost to replace.”
