Art and waste are inextricably tied together in ways painfully obvious and also in subtle, philosophical modes that deserve deeper consideration. Waste is everywhere and inescapable, but can it have value? And if it has value, is it waste? This publication of SNAPline offers a glimpse into these relationships and into rethinking waste from multiple perspectives, but this is just the tip of the garbage pile. Once we begin to see waste as a reflective surface, a process of deeper systems understanding, we’ll have a hard time unseeing ourselves in it. Our deepest thanks to the artists, students, writers, and editors who took time to contribute and reflect on the ideas within the SNAPline Waste edition.
