While its only been a year since I completed a residency at Recology, there is a legacy of artists using photography and video to build narratives, sets, and characters from recycled materials there. Photography and Video Retrospective of the Recology Artist in Residence Program is curated by Darrin Martin and includes works by Miguel Arzabe, Jamil Hellu, Robin Lasser, Jenny Odell, Kate Rhoades, Chris Sollars, and Nomi Talisman, among others.

In its 26th year, the Recology SF AIR Program provides Bay Area artists with studio space at the Recology San Francisco Transfer Station and Recycling Center, as well as access to materials in the Public Disposal and Recycling Area (the public dump). Artists work for 4 months on-site, and residencies culminate in public 3-day exhibitions. Over 150 artists have had residencies since the program’s founding.
