last gasp

Last Gasp was a Meet the Artist event for Artist Trust Fellowship recipient Britta Johnson. Visitors to the recycling and disposal station were asked for small pieces of trash as they waited in line to unload; Britta animated the pieces at a small mobile animation stand and then returned them to their owners in time to be thrown away. The resulting animations can be viewed here:
