It is the year 2318, big corporations have sucked the land dry of natural resources, causing a collapse in industry. It is in wake of this collapse that a weaving colony has formed in the outskirts of Cincinnati, on the side of Mount Rumpke. Here they excavate deep into the once landfill, harvesting materials. Their main crop is plastic bags, finding bags filled with other bags, they are able to reuse them without much processing. Once turned into yarn the plastic bags make durable cloth that can be used for rugs, upholstery, and even shelter. This room here is their community gathering space to create small woven “remnants”, share in communal weaving and discuss works with one another. This is TRASHTOPIA.
