Michael Bernstein's '10 Yard Forest' Uses Trash Cans

Artist Michael Bernstein’s ‘10 Yard Forest’ located in New York’s Sculpture Center is staged within a series of metal dumpsters. The miniature gardens and forests are meant to be installed in the corners of any city with hopes of their eventual spread throughout America.

Bernstein places a great deal of emphasis upon the value of transiency. The 10 Yard Forest model can be picked up and moved with ease, bringing beautiful green units to neighborhoods that may be dominated by sky scrapers or construction.

This lesson in recycling can also be interpreted and adapted in a variety of ways. His use of trash bins brings new purpose to the often sullied bins, making way for the unusual use of other public materials.
