GOC Gallery » Trash Cute Installation, the Island Colony in Honolulu Hawai'i

"People can't visualize what needs to be done. A lot of rust from the high salt content in sand occurs in the trash chute because the galvanized iron in it is a simpler metal, and the chute is closer to the air than the rebar. We start from the top down. It's like a ballet balancing between keeping people happy and not damaging the building. Usually, we try to get one elevator reserved for us. We cut the chute into pieces with a saw. It's noisy, but there's so much filth on the chute we can't use a torch to cut it, we might set the building on fire."
– Bob Connor, Head of Sales
