Bottle collection

Old bottle collection

On Friday afternoon I went to see an art installation at Centre A by artist Germaine Koh. The show, called Overflow, was a site specific display of hundreds of glass bottles deemed as unusable and reclaimed from local recycling depot, United We Can. I was glad to have made it to the show before it closed this weekend. It was an impressive display and definately interesting to photograph. It was also a very telling installation about many aspects of Vancouver life, and the role recyclables play in the survival of the city’s homeless population.
