#CAN1872P is a public project featuring interactive gabion-style benches that contain locally salvaged materials and debris. As a sculptural project, #CAN1872P refers to Robert Smithson’s non-site containers – minimal shaped structures that function as abstract representations of actual physical places via the accumulation of materials (generally rock or sand) sourced from sites other than the place of exhibition. As opposed to a specific geographic or spatial displacement, the materials contained within the #CAN1872P project – chunks of construction-salvaged-Oolite and South Beach-found debris – derive from the broader South Florida environment.
