Trust Art's sponsors have chosen ten emerging artists and some interesting projects to answer this very question. My favorite, since it hits close to home, is Facundo's plan to construct a self sufficient home soley out of garbage and shipping containers collected from the streets of Brooklyn. I have become increasingly skeptical of what happens to my garbage, especially my recycling. It'd be nice to know it was going to a good place.
Some other art includes: The documentary starring everyone you know.A worldwide commercial campaign for bamboo bikes. And community stimulus packages.
