TRAsh/ART

TRAsh/ART is a project in which discarded domestic appliances and objects are rescued and hacked with the purpose of turning them into alternative tools for visual expression. 


Through this process, a toy dart gun, a robot vacuum cleaner and a hand mixer became dissident tools for artistic expression. The images that resulted from this experiment were informed by what each object's affordances. 

As I explore the relationship between art, medium and material, I also reflect on the role of design in planned obsolescence, and global patterns of overconsumption and waste.
