It's All Yours

You are what you throw away!
And the leftovers we leave behind tell more stories about us than any other thing.
They are the strata of our memory.

In June 2014 we were invited to do an installation at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
We wanted to transform trash into souvenirs, not only the trash produced and stored by the museum but also the one that the visitors bring in their pockets.

We built a trash pool at the main hall, this pool was available for the visitors to take anything they wanted and to customize their own souvenirs made out of waste. They could compose a collage, label it and pack it.

A vacuum packing machine will helped us to do the process easier and faster.
The labels, previously designed, described the objects picked and their origin.
