Cycle-Logical Art: Recycling Matters for Eco-Art is part of an innovative textbook series entitled Avant-Guardians: Textlets in Art and Ecology. The term 'cycle-logical' creates a linguistic link between recycling and psychology. Cycle-logic means expanding thinking beyond current uses and end-point discards. It envisions never-ending material use. The first section of the book explores current recycling protocols, the history of garbage, strategies for dealing with garbage, and the environmental implications of these strategies. The second part introduces the innovative manner in which contemporary artists are addressing these issues. The third part invites readers to activate cycle-logic through research, discussion, and art projects.
