Gleaning at the City Dump #15
Here's another look at our office/work space at the Transfer Station. We have access to the three gray carts which we push around the bay, collecting our "trashy" art materials. The five of us have all claimed a little area of this space to store some of our treasures...the things that we don't necessarily want to take home with us right away. The "stuff" piled into the middle section (up against the wall) is the "free for all" zone...this is where we place those things that we find while gleaning, thinking that one of the artists might be able to use in some way. The piles continue to grow-we often have to throw away our own collections of saved stuff if there are no takers.
With the weather warming up, we are experiencing more dust in the bay. Notice the industrial-sized misting machine located at the top of this iron post. It does a pretty good job managing the dust.

Greg, just a note to let you know how much I am enjoying your work and the process of the gleaning. It is going to be sad for me when your grant is finished, although I hope to be able to continue seeing your work on YouTube! Thanks! Melody
