Participating artist Tyrome Tripoli, was provided with a fully equipped studio: including a metal working shop, wood shop and glass slumping. In addition he was paid a monthly stipend and had free rein of the 40,000 tons of refuses that passed through the sorting facility everyday. His main responsibility was to make art and give talks to the many tour groups that pass through the center. During the three month residency Tripoli produced a total of 100 sculptures.
