…Justin Gignac collected garbage from the last opening days?

Garbage Cubes

Justin Gignac is at it again, and this time he’s collected the garbage from Shea and Yankee Stadium’s last opening days for a limited edition set of Garbage Cubes.

Each one is one of a kind, and features fresh picked garbage from the respective locations.

Get yours now before they’re all gone; because memories come and go, but garbage lasts forever.

…Justin Gignac is selling his wants?

Wants For Sale

New York trash extraordinaire Justin Gignac is at it again, and this time he’s got some wants that he’s looking to get.

Called Wants For Sale, it’s a series of paintings that he and his girlfriend have painted of the things that that he and his girlfriend have wanted, and they’re all being sold for the actual price of the actual item.

There’s a painting of an iPhone that sells for $649.17, a painting of a Guitar for GH2 that sold for $64.98, and Financial Security that sells for $1 Mil.

It’s an interesting concept, and judging by the results so far, one that is doing quite well for them.

Anybody interested in buying a painting of a Ferrari that I just did?

…Trash is art?

Trashball Sign

Apparently, Justin Gignac isn’t the only one who thinks that garbage can be art. Christopher Goodwin, a 37-year-old dump truck driver from Washington D.C., collects trash and puts it into one-inch plastic balls that he calls Trashballs. He then fills two vending machines with these Trashballs, and for a quarter, anyone can get a piece of his work. So far he’s sold over 3,000 of them, for a total profit of $750 (in other words, he does it for the love, and not for the money). What love, you ask? “I kind of think everything deserves a second look… Someone designed this, manufactured it, used it and tossed it away”. These aren’t just G rated balls either; as he’s been known to fill them with “dead bugs, drug baggies and broken glass”. There’s even a sign over each dispenser, asking that no one under 18 buy a Trashball.


If you’d like to see some of the larger and more important pieces of trash that Chris finds, be sure to check out his blog for a look at some of D.C.’s finest. It’s trashtastic.
