Kim Alsbrooks
paints 17th and 18th
Century portraits on
trash she finds in the
streets.
Image by Kim Alsbrooks
The trash must
already be flattened
perfectly. She will
not flatten it herself.
Image by Kim Alsbrooks
Once Kim finds a perfect piece
of trash, she finds the perfect
portrait for that piece.
Image by Kim Alsbrooks
(I’m not sure
whether it is harder
for Kim to find the
trash or paint the
portrait.)

The people Kim
paints died long
before TV,
computers, Coke
and Bud were
invented.
Image by Kim Alsbrooks
I have never met Kim.
I found her work on Vimeo,
which led me to her
web site , home of these images.

Kim’s work gave me
an idea, which led to
this Slideshare.
Image by Kim Alsbrooks
My work may give
you an idea.
Image by Kim Alsbrooks
It may take ten
minutes or 1,000
years for this work
to inspire a
spectacular idea.

Or… you might just
be slightly nicer to
your spouse… or
child… or friend…
because Kim’s work
made you smile.

We are all connected.
Your ideas and actions
impact other people,
even when it seems they
do not.
Image by Kim Alsbrooks
The connections
between us are often
neither immediate nor
obvious.
Image by Kim Alsbrooks
The people you impact
may think very
differently than you do.
Image by Kim Alsbrooks
Do not wait for a
response.
Image by Kim Alsbrooks
The best response to
your work may not
come for 100 years.

the past, from the
present, and from the
future.

Mashup the world in

do the same to you.
