Trans Trash Exhibition, MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts

Trans Trash is a collaborative exhibition that brings together staff, faculty, visiting researchers and students from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and  tries to make people sensitive to the subject of waste by raising awarenes and encouraging small local changes in the ways individuals treat garbage in their individual lives.

The aim of this project is to make waste cycles transparent to the public in an attempt to enable more personal social awareness and responsibility. Using Cambridge, MA, as a region of focus, and MIT as a hyper-local example, the works in the exhibition display information about local waste and the overlaps or tensions between the informal and formal waste management sectors.
