Each station presents three areas: graphics and small artifacts on top. Main artifacts with Q&A in middle, and recycled materials at bottom. Photo: Dennis Letbetter.
All main artifacts swivel around aluminum rods. Artifacts are filled with hardened industrial resins.
Original design had a large cylinder at bottom holding the recycled plastic pellets, but was later changed to smaller tubes.
CarouselSouth San Francisco Scavenger Company
Recycling exhibit for children's education center. This exhibit takes its inspiration from a timeless form of kid entertainment: the old fashioned horse carousel. The artifacts are presented in the exhibit like a circular arrangement of toy horses. Like the horses in a carousel, the bottles and containers are suspended on the poles, but they can also spin around, showing all sides of the artifact. The stations themselves can turn like a carousel. Industrial design consultant: Mark Kapka. Fabrication: Kane Design Studio.
