Victor Castro: Social Sculpture and Sustainability
The Construction of the Ruins
Castro’s TetraPAKMAN exhorts us all to help save the earth from the continual creation of our own ruin. Pulling materials out of our waste stream and recycling them into art objects and public sculpture, often engaging the public as helpmates in the process, is Castro’s process to heighten our awareness.
By encouraging our participation in saving resources and cutting our waste and dependence on destructive practices, Castro is part of a growing movement of environmental artists directly engaged with mounting international environmental issues.
