Globus is an interactive anthropomorphic globe-shaped sculpture that serves as a repository for aluminum cans and plastic bottles. People are encouraged to pitch their empty bottles and cans into his gaping mouth. He gobbles up trash!


His earth-shaped body slowly filling with trash symbolizes how our planet is being inundated with materials that could otherwise be recycled. It’s an interactive community participation sculpture that focuses attention on the importance of recycling.
