“Outstanding service. They were extremely careful delivering the extra large container into our driveway.” -- A. L. GARNER
Arte Povera work or example of anarchitecture by the artist Gordon Matta-Clark. The rough diagonal line on the front of the work emerged as Harman began to assemble it and discovered that his spirit level was “useless” against the competing slants of the potholed street and the bent steel sides of the dumpster. [embedded content]Kevin Harman working on Skip 16 (2018) in Mt Vernon, New YorkFilm by Christopher L. CookHarman had been labouring in the lugger, without assistants, for 18-hour stretches for two days, staying until at least midnight and relying on a headlamp to see into the container’s tight, dark corners, since the street light above was broken. After clearing out organic materials (decomposing fruit, a bag of coleslaw, half a chicken squashed in tin foil) and scrubbing the dumpster’s inside walls to get rid of any “dribblage contamination” and smelly residues, he set to work creating order out of chaos. Although he sketches out ideas for the structure, he does not know what the finished work will look like until he starts building it. But he always starts with an understanding of the materials he has to work with, in this case everything from cement blocks, bricks and a large-format printer hidden at the core of the sculpture to scraps of paper, Styrofoam and sheets of black rubber. “You start getting a feel for different weights and a sense of how it will come out,” Harman says. During the visit, he cut cardboard boxes into smaller strips and broke apart wooden pallets—New York apparently has “the strongest known to man”—to create Skip 16’s sedimentary layers. Harman says that sorting through the rubbish and making it into something that is recognisably art is “like therapy”, but he gets the most satisfaction from the conversations he has with passers-by as they watch the work develop. One of them, a local man named Lionel who had visited regularly, stopped by on his way home from work and repeatedly said, “I can’t believe it!” as he walked around the dumpster, seeing the neatly formed block where once there was just a jumble of trash.

Louisville.The former Italian-owned Essroc plant – now German-owned Lehigh Hanson – failed to persuade Judge Susan L. Orth for the Clark County Circuit Court that Clark County zoning officials botched their handling of the controversial matter."The court has clearly rejected (Lehigh Hanson's) efforts to burn hazardous wastes near so many homes and schools without complying with the county's longstanding zoning requirements," said Khushi Desai, staff attorney with Earthjustice, which was representing the Sierra Club in the case.The Sierra Club had intervened in the case filed by the company against Clark County. The Conservation Law Center in Bloomington was also involved in the case."It's time for (Lehigh Hanson) to follow the process and ensure the protections required by the law," she said.Related: Kentucky, Indiana home to top 'super-polluters'From the archives: Essroc loses appeal to burn hazardous wasteOrth ruled the plant in Speed, Indiana, did not follow the proper administrative procedures before filing its lawsuit seeking to overturn a local zoning decision.
