Cascade: collective thirst by Virginia Fleck  Image: Cascade: collective thirst is a 27 ft long 
suspended sculpture made form 85K post-consumer aluminum tabs, safety pins and key 
rings. Aluminum can-tabs chained together with safety pins are layered and massed to 
create a dense sparkling texture. The long chains of can-tabs, reflective, glinting in the 
light, awaken a sense of wonder in those who pass by. When a viewer draws near, 
closer inspection reveals that the waterfall is made from tens of thousands of aluminum 
can-tabs, one of many common disposable items that continuously pass through our 
hands.
