Consumer consumption of goods and resources is one of the nu merous factors that underlie environmental decline. In “Reframe: Making Se nse of Waste\,” 15 artists were selected to present how they grapple with the meaning of all that waste through the use of scraps and discarded mat erial in their work. The resulting pieces demonstrate their resourcefulnes s\, imagination and creativity.

Through “Reframe\,” the publi c is invited to reflect on their own individual role in generating waste a nd environmental pollution. The undisputed and alarming fact remains that today\, one-fifth of the world’s population consume 86% of the world’s tot al resources. Consumer demand is stimulated by an irresistible and powerfu l advertising industry and is interlocked into our economy. Consequently\, any imbalance can easily lead to economic disequilibrium and thus trigger recession\, depression\, and massive unemployment. The solution to this problem is not easily attainable\; however\, each of us can make a dent in reversing the trend. We all have a stake in the well-being of the global society. Can we as a society make a real commitment to sustainable develop ment and reclaim part of the waste in a meaningful way? Perhaps these work s can inspire a dialogue that can contribute to exploring this question. < br />
“Reframe” is a teachable moment and reflexive show that calls for individual responsibility\, an examination of the waste around us\, an d questioning our consumption behaviors. While viewing the exhibit\, we as k that you think of ways to harness the insatiable appetite for goods tha t drive the demand of ever-increasing products. As consumers and viewers\, think of what you contribute to environmental degradation and your consum ption habits.
