Ann Wizer, the artist who wants to save the world from waste.

Ann Wizer, environmental activist artist and founder of XSProject... established the non-profit XSProject Foundation in 2004 to raise environmental awareness and to directly assist the trash picker communities to improve their living standards by providing income, scholarships and health programmes.

Wizer continues to develop new programs for the XSProject Foundation and looks for ways to use more types of consumer waste in XSProject product designs. In her continuing art practice, she addresses the larger political issues surrounding environmental degradation and poverty by using trash and documentation through XSProject and in her artwork.
