Cardboard Club - DKult trashmindfulness - Robert Ridley shackleton

For an exhibition I've been involved with that looked at the role visual art can play in wellbeing, I read up on mindfulness. I see picking up trash as the activity part of a mindful walk,  and I think RRS assembles his trash and then annotates it a way that I find mindful.  IMHO this piece is an exquisite example of trashmindfulness.  I would hazard that trashmindfulness is an aesthetic that is shared, but interpreted differently by other trashpoets we know and adore: Diane Keys, Jim Leftwich, Eduardo Cardoso and others. RRS, many thanks for indoctrinating me into the club!
