Site Specific Art

Site-specific art is created to exist in a certain place. Typically, the artist takes the location into account while planning and creating the artwork. The actual term was promoted and refined by Californian artist Robert Irwin, but it was actually first used in the mid-1970s by young sculptors who had started executing public commissions for large urban sites.

This week the book took a trip to its eventual resting place– the recycle center. This center recycles everything you can name that is not a hazardous material. Several times per year they take special items, including computers and other electronics. They even recycle fabric and clothing too far gone for Goodwill and Amvets. Good for them. Good for the book!
