That's Rather Artistic

One man's trash is another (wo)man's...super cool map of Brooklyn? That's the case for artist Jennifer Maravillas. For an artwork titled 71 Square Miles (the size of Brooklyn?duh), Maravillas created a 10-foot by 10-foot map that she's turning into a colorful mosaic of paper pieces by documenting every single block through garbage she finds on each street. "I'm kind of the weirdest person on the sidewalk right now," she admits, but she's not the grossest. She wears heavy duty gloves to, you know, protect from hepatitis and all that. [Animal NY]
