Basurama participated in the exhibition EXPO CRUZ curated by Paco Clavel in the traditional celebration of the “Cruces de Mayo” in Pastrana (Guadalajara).

Basurama intervened one of the wooden crosses that were distributed to the 10 artists taking part in the exhibition.

We try to make the cross usefull, to give it another propouse. We chose to add skateboard wheels Skotperez found the other day in the trash. So now we have the cross with wheels and sandpaper on one side and table mini-skateboard in the other.

The opening was on the 30th April at Palacio Ducal de Pastrana.

This year is the one

THIS YEAR IS THE ONE
 
In Spain, some companies give ham to their clients for Christmas. We can only give them the bone.
In order to celebrate a most special 2015, we sent some ham bones to a few friends.
We’ll get out of the crisis in 2015, and then we will be able to afford the bones, that are still delicious and the base for some of our favorite dishes.

Enjoy it!

 

a Dress for Lady Gaga

The idea was born after loading Raquel’s car with thousands of earphones assigned by Renfe (Spanish Railway Company) to carry out a reuse workshop coordinated by basurama and entupunto.

We were astonished when we realized that the amount of earphones we got was only collected on a single day and was only corresponding with one train route. How many not reusable headphones end up in the trash daily?

The workshop never took place, but during the experimentation with the earphones and the workshop design, searching for references… Lady Gaga as an icon for new attires…#adressforladygaga.

Our goal was Lady Gaga to get the dress. After a social media campaign (mainly through twitter @VestidoLadyGaga) we finally get close enough. The dress have been sent to Brandon Maxwell (Lady Gaga stylist) … will Lady Gaga wear it?

All the earphones used to weave the dress are single-use, non-recyclable and almost never reused. Their usable time does not exceed three hours (the time it takes for the route Madrid to Barcelona by train). The price of each earphone in the market is between 0.1 and 0.3 USD. The enterprises that manufacture them have the ability to supply 1 million earphones a month and the shipping time is of only 15 days to anywhere in the world.

For knitting the dress we used 235 earphones, each of which measures extended 2.15 m, which means that the ball of headphones used measured 535.8 meters. The result is a dress of 78 cm long, 45 cm hip, that weighs 2,720 kg and that corresponds to a size 36-38.

The dress it is not only a dress, but a musical instrument, and a loudspeaker of more than two hundred of loudspeakers … a dress for Lady Gaga.
