For 9 years the artist Satoshi Hirose collected the plastic bottle caps from the bottles he had consumed. His latest sculpture, currently on view at Galleria Maria Grazia Del Prete in Rome, represents his 9 years of existence through a sculpture of those bottle caps that resembles an island or, in my case, a heaping mound of garbage. The day-to-day accumulation of everyday materials are contrasted with the pictures of everyday activities that hang on the wall, immediately forcing the visitor to reflect on the life cycle.

Hirose’s work is on display at GMDP through March 24, 2012.
