GOCA needs Styrofoam

Posted By on Wed, Dec 19, 2012 at 3:35 PM

Think about this if you're pulling apart the packing material on that new TV or computer you're going to get for Christmas. (Amiright?)

Those awkward chunks of Styrofoam are just what artist Michael Salter needs for his upcoming exhibition at the Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA 1420 specifically). Salter builds robots, both large and small, from the material, to dramatic effect:

In January, Salter will build a "monumental sculpture project" for GOCA, and to get him going, the gallery is collecting "packing and substantial pieces of extruded polystyrene." Broken pieces and packing peanuts will not be accepted.

Donations will be accepted at both galleries, and pick-ups can be arranged for large quantities. Click here and here for more info.
