These installations of Jason Peters began with garbage.  While driving he spotted many of these buckets – the five gallon type often found in hardware stores.  Soon Peters had collected hundreds of them.  His installations utilize these buckets to form huge winding installations. The stacked buckets snake through large gallery spaces lit from within.  In his statement, he says of his work:

“By using large multiples of discarded items in repeating designs that establish unexpected patterns, societal cast offs are made beautiful through the alliteration of form. Once removed from their traditional context, the objects’ interaction with the environment becomes unpredictable and unstable”
