Trash is something that gives me lots of anxiety. With every piece of trash I throw away I imagine it as it piles up into a landfill, adding to what feels like impending doom. I decided to track my trash, and my roommates, through this photo series.  Leftover birthday cake, fruits, candy packaging and lots of plastic bottles made up this collection. To take something scary and add throw some glitter on it to make something fun helped ease that anxiety. This trash was repurposed for an interesting composition and of course, everything was recycled after.
