Watch my video while listening to my poem, “For Your Pleasure”, written following an exhibition I went to by Vik Muniz at CAC Malaga, in Oct 2012.

Vik Muniz created and photographed all of the art installations in the video, with help from some of the site workers. He called his project “Portraits of Garbage”, a title inspired by the subject matter and location of the project at a vast Rio landfill site called Jardim Granacho.

The artist donated nearly all of the proceedings from  sales of the art installations back to the Jardim Granacho workers and their own social projects. His amazing’ project was filmed and can be seen on a DVD called “Wasteland” which you can purchase here: http://amzn.to/1TluN4y .  The film is every bit as fascinating and heartwarming as the blurb on the back of the DVD case says it is.

The guitar music on the video is called “Granaina” and is played by Pepe Habuelcha. It’s available on the album, “The Beginner’s Guide to Flamenco” which you can purchase here: http://amzn.to/29jz0FB
