Like the scent of the subway and hustling Times Square Elmos, garbage is an everyday element in the Big Apple—so why not embrace it? This "periodic table" of trash by native New Yorkers Molly Young and Teddy Blanks is a pseudo-scientific satire of Gotham's refuse and the disposable cultural record it represents. Organized into nine groups of naturally occurring (and accumulating) elements from broken umbrellas to bagel nubs, it's part revolting, part revelatory, and an authentic document of the New York experience. Oscar the Grouch would be proud. Photographed, designed, and printed in New York.
