Layers of dumpster trash and pictures I found

Here is another collection of photos I found of people in dumps, art inspired by dumps, a general slide show of inspiration. I am stewing in images in the hopes that I will come up with some art based on it. A friend invited me to collaborate with her on a show about a dump near where she lives.We collected all kinds of things from this dump--old oil cans,squashed and battered tea kettles, unidentifiable wire bits linked together. I found some parts of old porcelain sinks too. I think these bits look like old bodies really and that we as people are as much a part of the landscape that we create. I will make some sketches and scan them at some point.
