Mac Premo / The Dumpster Project

Mac Premo / The Dumpster Project

Mac Premo's Dumpster Project is the result of quandary. Faced with the prospect of throwing his stuff away, Mac decided instead that each object was to fulfill its ostensible destiny: it would see life as art. Rather than the dumpster as trash mechanism, Mac has converted a 30-foot long industrial dumpster into an exhibition space where each object is discretely displayed. In conjunction with the installation, Mac has embarked on the ambitious task of cataloguing each and every item for the project’s blog. Each day an entry featuring an item is revealed and includes a photograph of the item taken by Mac, accompanied by a description of its significance along with its dimensions. Through these daily entries, the visitor quickly gains an understanding of Mac’s aesthetic, quirks, sense of humor, love of family, and sense of self.You can see a video of Mac explaining the project here, and more work from his folio here.
