Really nice project by Nora Korn and Christoph Köhler. Both from the German city of Mainz they have transformed everyday waste into a series of alternative products. Having collected over fifty piles of rubbish the pair documented the project over the course of three months which resulted in eleven items of “newly combined, rebuilt or converted bulky waste”.
“In times of fading resources when the demand for sustainability is growing and the desire fore more and more new products is omnipresent, both works show that the solution for all these problems is nearby – maybe too near: at the pavement around the corner.”
