Opening reception for SINGLE STREAM

Ongoing

SINGLE STREAM (2013), by Paweł Wojtasik, Toby Lee, and Ernst Karel, explores a materials recovery facility in Charlestown, Massachusetts where hundreds of tons of refuse are sorted and processed daily for recycling. Blurring the line between observation and abstraction, SINGLE STREAM plunges the viewer into the steady flow of the plant, capturing the complex and fascinating processes devised to treat the enormous amount of waste Americans produce every day. As it moves among criss-crossing conveyor belts, industrial paper shredders, and glass-smashing drums, SINGLE STREAM examines the significant material consequences of our society’s culture of excess.

Free admission. RSVP to rsvp@movingimage.us with subject line “SINGLE STREAM”
