Statement:

Living in this overconsumptive society is a burden and a privilege at the same time. What it takes to bring a product to market and what happens after youÔÇśve consumed it is a phenomenon to itself.

As much as it saddens me to see the leftovers of consumerism and that it exceeds the capacity of our recycling infrastructure by far, I still feel the urge to find beauty in the ruins of capitalism and overconsumption.

My aim with this ongoing collection of consumerist scenarios found in public spaces is to confront western societyÔÇśs relationship with waste, consumerism, and the disposable nature of our materialistic culture. Each item tells a unique storyÔÇöa story of consumption, of neglect, and ultimately, of our collective human experience.

Through "Trash Scenarios", I endeavour to disrupt the narrative surrounding waste, challenging preconceived notions of value and prompting viewers to reconsider their relationship with the objects they discard. By extracting these fragments from their mundane context and presenting them in a digital room I invite viewers to examine the profound implications of our consumer-driven society.

All scenarios displayed in the archive and the digital room have been translated into more dimensional file formats by using the technology of LiDAR scanning (3D scanning) and Photogrammetry.

Do we really need bigger trash cans? Or should we reflect more about our individual consumption bahaviour?
