About Trash Talk
Through their temporary art installation, Leah Miller and Alisan LeMay engaged and educated viewers at the September 25 “Rock the Block” event about the global impact of the trash crisis. The artists collected garbage from around the Cultural Corridor and arranged it into infographics to spark conversation about local consumer habits and how to better manage waste.
“It’s interesting to see how you start finding these little bits of trash that we missed. You don’t realize how much is there until you start looking.” – Leah Miller
Trash Talk, founded by Leah Miller and Alisan LeMay, uses a community’s trash to raise awareness about consumption and the global trash crisis. Both are graduates of Lesley University in Cambridge, MA, and are graphic designers with a passion for sustainable design.
