Jason Wright; Burning Man 2007: Basura; 8/2007

This structure, titled "Basura," was constructed for Burning Man, 2007. Parts were made in Michigan in the weeks leading up to the last week of August when it was all put together out in Black Rock City.

This is the description I submitted for the guide to the Burning Man art installations:
This sculptural installation represents a visual and spatial examination of recycling as an artistic process. The raw material for this installation consists of drawings, paintings and collage that have been glued to thin plywood paneling. This is the artist's unsold artistic output reduced to fragments and reconfigured into an interactive structure that is inspired by the sand mandalas created by Buddhist monks. As such, process and temporality are central issues in it's construction, as they are to the Burning Man experience itself.
