If nature were allowed to reclaim the land in the city it would grow out of the refuse of man. Our waste would be incorporated into its new life. What Andy and Andy are illustrating in “Renewed Urban Studio Tent” is an example of recycling the materials found in the city into a new structure building on the contaminated urban soil. Andy and Andy will be giving a presentation on the history of environmental art, their reasons for building “RUST” and display of a detailed model of their project. Light breakfast will be served.
