MOOREcycle began in 2009 with a challenge to create an opportunity for Moore students to get involved in cross-disciplinary activities that build school pride and energize the student body by bringing together the campus community. Listen to Moore’s Foundation chair Lynn Palewicz, and TerraCycle (https://www.terracycle.com) Senior Designer (and Moore Alum) Lori Anselm (‘87) discuss what MOORECycle is all about!

Student Services, who leads the project, has been making MOOREcycle an annual event that engages all members of the Moore community, while creating environmental awareness. Moore partners with TerraCycle, one of the fastest-growing green companies in the world. TerraCycle’s mission is to eliminate the idea of “waste” by converting post-consumer products of all kinds into a wide variety of useful wares and materials for major retailers, often through a process called “upcycling.”

Moore students upcycled materials provided by TerraCycle that would otherwise be put in a landfill, for art and design assignments. For MOOREcycle, the company donated enough raw materials to cover the length of both sides of The Parkway! The College was able to partner with TerraCycle thanks to the connection made by alumna Lori Anselm ‘87, a textile design major who is a project designer at the company.

Special thanks to:
TerraCycle is a proud triple-bottom line company

Founded in 2001 by Tom Szaky, then a 20-year-old Princeton University freshman, TerraCycle, Inc. began producing organic fertilizer by packaging liquified “worm poop” in used soda bottles. Since the inauspicious start, TerraCycle has become one of the fastest-growing green companies in the world.

More than just a recycling company, TerraCycle strives to be a driving force behind increasing environmental awareness and action. Their goal is to be a trusted resource for families, schools, communities, and even corporations to find tips, stats, facts, tactics, and news to help them live a greener, cleaner lifestyle. They are Eliminating the Idea of Waste®.

Today, TerraCycle is a highly-awarded, international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and repurposes the material into affordable, innovative products. TerraCycle is widely considered the world’s leader in the collection and reuse of non-recyclable, post-consumer waste.
TerraCycle works with more than 100 major brands in the U.S. and 22 countries overseas to collect used packaging and products that would otherwise be destined for landfills. It repurposes that waste into new, innovative materials and products that are available online and through major retailers.

Join Us! Looking At Cities with Jenny Odell
Monday, March 24th 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Stewart Auditorium

Presented by Moore College of Art & Design and The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program

Please RSVP at muraLAB@muralarts.org

What does an artist whose work consists primarily of collaging images that she culls from the Internet have to do with muralmaking, or community-based art practice?

A lot, as it turns out.

Jenny Odell, who is based in San Francisco, uses the virtual world as a lens for looking at the physical world.

We call her lecture “Looking at Cities” because her work offers a new approach to the basic but profound task of making observations about the world around us based on what we see.

Odell will scour Google Earth for instances of an urban archetype, such as a sports stadium, excerpt them and collage them into an ersatz collection. She will take satellite views of places like parks and prisons, and edit out everything but the traces of people, leaving us to wonder about the interaction between people, landscape and urban form.

Like murals, her collages offer composed and hybrid views, relying an artist’s point of view to mediate the (already mediated) satellite views and street views that we commonly draw on to provide us with a visual portrait of the world. Like Mural Arts’ socially engaged work, her projects offer vivid commentaries on politics of urbanization and the ethics of visual representation.

For example, Odell’s project, Power Trip, was inspired by her investigation, via Google Earth, of the networks of infrastructure that provide power to San Francisco. After she traced the route of the power grid on satellite imagery, she decided to follow the same route in a car, and became deeply aware of the impact that infrastructure like this has on the landscapes and communities, far from the city, that it passes through.

This is the type of discovery that is at the heart of great political murals, from Diego Rivera’s frescos about labor and manufacturing, to Charles Sheller’s paintings of American life after World War I, to the countless WPA murals that chronicled the industrialization of America. And it remains a narrative about communities, natural resources, environment and work that is vital to our urban future.

We hope you will join us 6 pm Monday, March 24, at Moore College’s Stewart Auditorium, where the Mural Arts Program, muraLAB and the Moore College of Art and Design will host Odell and a lecture about her work.
