“Remade” is a personal project about Los Angeles recyclers, individuals often in transitional stages of their lives who sell recycleble materials for small cash refunds. For some, it’s a full time venture. For others, it’s a way to make some money on the side. Many are immigrants participating in the informal economy. Once collected and compacted, the materials travel to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach where they are loaded onto container ship for a jorney to Asia. There they will be remade into new objects. The liminal space that the recyclers and the materials shared is what fascinated me.
