The Trash Museum, located on the coast of Greenpoint,  symbolizes a rebirth from pollution by illustrating oysters reclaim their tainted habitat of the East River. The abstracted shell shape, derived from the shape of oyster shells, takes on various structural roles. Visitors can help the façade grow as well as see the unconventional things found at the bottom of the East River and other nearby bodies of water. The Trash Museum forces patrons to confront their environmental impact as it gradually becomes swallowed in the filth that humans throw into it.
