TRASH project is an artwork that inspires mindfulness about waste creation.

 

Our mission is a campaign for urban beautification and environmental awareness.

MAXIMALISM

ENGAGING COMMUNITIES
By activating public space with sculptures of color, TRASH sparks awareness about waste, sanitation, and consumption. The daily task of creating waste is mundane, thoughtless, yet necessary.  It does not have to be this way. Instead, it can be related to as a social practice that is expressive, informed, and sustainable.

CLEAN UPS

ENCOURAGING CLEANLINESS
We support and organize events to foster a positive way to care for the environment. Ocean plastic pollution is starting to critically affect our marine food chain, coastline habitats, and clean water sources. Clean ups are a direct solution to waste management.  Let's all participate actively in habits that keep our earth and oceans clean.

#PLASTICLEAKAGE

An estimated 8 million tonnes of plastic waste enter our Oceans every year.

 

If we don’t act now to reduce and refine our waste cycle the Ocean will contain 1 lb of plastic for every 3 lb of fish by 2025.

80% of leakage originates on land.

SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM

Global over consumption of single use plastics

Lack of waste management in Industrializing Countries

HISTORY

TRASH project started as an interactive idea to promote urban beautification and environmental awareness by organizing an art practice around the common task of trash disposal. It was first presented in 2008 as a series of alternative media interventions titled TRASH Maximalism, a transformation of standard trash piles into self-generating sculptures of vivid color.
