My guidelines were to build a large outdoor sculpture that pays tribute to the work being done at the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation and the people who work there.  Using materials that are available from the facility I built a large free standing sculpture constructed out of refrigerators, tires, aluminum, plastic, metal and wood creating a work of art that addresses the issue of recycling
