The Dumpster is on its way to Miami for the Pulse Art Fair. When I watched it head down Flatbush, I realized this was the first time it was to travel without me.
OK, bye bye, everything.
|The Dumpster leaves the Dekalb market in Brooklyn, a great home for the past month. The artist known as carting-truck-driver Ray from 5 Star Carting takes the Dumpster up to Preiser Rigging in Putnam County, 70 miles north of Brooklyn.|
|This is what you do if you a re a rigger: you rig stuff. The Dumpster was rigged for a crane to lift it onto a flatbed truck. According to Bruce, the owner/operator of Preiser and a third generation rigger, the Dumpster weighs 10,000 pounds.|
|So the boys at Preiser Rigging have done their job; the Dumpster is on the truck.|
|The driver inspects the load.|
|Said driver is Alberto from Mercer Transport. Alberto is game; jumping around the place tarping the Dumpster, smiling wide. God speed, Alberto. See you in Miami.|
