Single Stream

Flusso unico

Single Stream takes a close look at the problem of waste through a visual and sonic exploration of a recycling facility. The title refers to the "single stream" method of recycling in which all types of recyclables are initially gathered together and sorted later at a specialized facility. Viewers enter one of the largest of these materials recovery facilities in the U.S. Inside a cavernous building, a vast machine complex runs like clockwork, sorting a steady stream of glass, metal, paper, and plastic carried on conveyor belts criss-crossing the space, dotted with workers in neon vests.
