Carapace is a turtle-shell-like dome made entirely of trash bins and recycling containers. It was first presented in North America at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington six years ago, and was remounted for the final time in January 2011, for the Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton. The special edition of the catalogue that the AGA produced for the exhibition came housed in a slipcase made of the recycled recycling bins.
