“Tossed And Found”: Artist Makes Tiny Sculptures From The Cast-Off NY Trash

Since the mid 1990s, Yuji Agematsu has used debris from New York’s streets to create a series of dioramas inside the cellophane sleeves of cigarette packets. The pieces below are from a year of his work entitled zip: 01.01.17 . . . 12.31.17.

As well as preserving what he finds on his daily walks, Agematsu keeps detailed logs of his discoveries and maps of the routes he has taken.
