Small Moons is a large-scale art installation by Seattle trio SuttonBeresCuller [4], made from collected and unwanted objects. Sponsored by artwithoutwalls [7], John Sutton, Ben Beres and Zac Culler, asked local Louisville residents via a Craigslist ad to donate their trashed treasures or treasured trash to be part of an art installation. For the month of September, the trio built four geodesic domes from PVC pipe and then wired the donated materials onto the domes.

“We sent out requests for people to bring in their trashed treasures or treasured trash, things they no longer wanted that they might otherwise give away or throw away,” says [8] artwithoutwalls director and 21C chief curator Alice Gray Stites. “These sculptures are portraits of the community, a collective vision of Louisville.” Everything from dolls, stuffed animals, statues, lamps, clocks chairs, bikes, toys, tvs, fans and much more are part of the installation. Things that use power were even wired in and operated for the exhibition, so clocks blinked, fans whirred and lamps glowed. Small Moons was on view at the Land of Tomorrow [9] gallery from the end of September through the beginning of November in 2012.
