Jonathan Gitelson: The Garbage Can Project

Jonathan Gitelson started to video tape, take picture of and number his garbage cans in response to their constant theft. The project took place daily from 2005 to 2008 when the artist moved to a new apartment. He, in a way, takes a journey through his documentation of following the movements of the trashcans as well as the people who interact with them. Check out his “encounters” on the Garbage Can Project Website.
