Details on the process

YOU ARE INVITED to participant in an ongoing ART project. Volunteers are asked to collect ALL waste material used in the care of their medically fragile family member during a 24-hour period. This could include recyclable material, packaging, feeding supplies, and medications. As well as needles, vials, port or central line care, suction, and trach supplies. Diapers, pull-ups and wipes are excluded at this time. 

Why?

The underlying purpose for this very important and ongoing project is to give a voice and a visibility to an often overlooked minority. With ideas of consumption, identity and both personal and political advocacy; I envision an increased awareness for our community.
