These two short videos by New York photographer-videographer Jan Staller reflect on a potent contradiction of contemporary material life. Where "Cycle" revels in the powerful abstracting of paper traveling at high speed down a conveyor belt on its first step to being recycled, "Saved" is a playful celebration of hundreds of small tools and toys accumulated over the years by the artist. Together these videos ask us to reflect on what we choose to keep and what we throw away.
