Welcome and thank you for visiting our site!

The USgathering Project, combines participatory workshops, energetic public activities, materials gathering initiatives, visits to schools and organizations, development of monumental pieces, alternative education, and environmental activism.

Art Powered Experiences

We believe in the power of the Arts as a tool and as a medium, we use abstraction as a language that helps us communicate with everybody, and when we say everybody, we include all of us, with out limitations or distinctions of age, gender, etc.

 

Community projects

Our Projects focus on the community. Our principal material is people and we are always looking to have fun. Our goal is to promote creativity and joy to develop new strategies and skills between participants. Sustainability is always in our mind.

TetraPAKMAN is creating the Future

 

baltimore11

TetraPAKMAN is committed to both environmental and social change, and creates thought-provoking sculptures and installations using materials most people consider trash: plastic bottles, metal cans, Tetra Pak cartons, bottle caps, yogurt containers, and so on. His inventive approach to his materials results in evolving sculptures that play with repetitive pattering, the movement of light and shadow, and structural ingenuity. Central to his artistic process is generating a network of people who not only provide the raw material for the sculpture, but also contribute their energy to the project by adding on segments to the larger piece over time. TetraPAKMAN leverages these interpersonal interactions to teach individuals and communities about environmental issues.

The time is Now

TetraPAKMAN is participating on this year’s Wisconsin Triennial  at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. The exhibition will be on view in the museum’s lobby, State Street Gallery, Imprint Gallery, main galleries, and rooftop sculpture garden through January 8, 2017.
He will work with students involved in the museum’s ArtZone program to construct a colorful and expansive installation from discarded plastic pipette holders and zip ties.

 

We encourage you to keep checking back here to see the evolution of the piece.
