Today’s obsessive materialism occurs without consideration of what happens to things when we no longer need or want them. In An Aesthetic Afterlife, five Wisconsin artists literally address the myriad problems raised by our “throw-away culture.” But they do so somewhat optimistically, using old objects to create beautiful works of art. Secondhand objects are saved from their potential graves, proving that it is possible for them to live an aesthetic and purposeful afterlife.
