Project description

This project emerges from the need of creating new views regarding waste in our cities. It focuses on objects in disuse that temporarily occupy public space, those things that anonymous citizens abandon in the street. The intention is to open new ways of envisioning those things that we perceive as garbage but that can acquire a new value if we are capable of changing our point of view. Therefore, before being able to understand why these objects end up in the street we need to observe how we got to this point. Which process is behind the creation of residues? Why is it that a same object can end up being considered garbage, patrimony, an antique or something recyclable? Finally, which debates propose art and design regarding these objects? The design that I present is a series of pieces that question the citizen and that invite him to connect and act in a different way with objects in disuse.
