Fast Trash

4/28/2010 Uncategorized

Check out this excellent exhibit organized by friend and former Utilian Juliette Spertus with graphic designers Projects Projects. The topic: the progressive and little-known pneumatic tube trash infrastructure at Roosevelt Island. “Part infrastructure portrait, part urban history, the exhibition draws on archival materials, original maps, photographs, drawings, diagrams and video interviews to bring an invisible system to the surface, and asks what a community built around progressive policies and technologies can teach us about how we choose our infrastructure.”
