Prompt: This is a narrative essay written from the perspective of garbage. Within the essay I unfold the hostile relationship garbage has with with humans and it's desire to return back to the earth from which it came.

Within Integrative Studio 1 we were given the task to create a piece of art from “nothing” and collect data on the public reaction to it. My group chose to present photographs of garbage to the public, hanging posters within school and on the street with contact information for the public to respond. It was then our duty to create a narrative piece from the perspective of this object. My group broke the project into three narratives (garbage, galleries, and text font), with each of us writing from a different perspective. My assigned topic was garbage.
