“Designer trash” workshop at IAV in Orleans

Last week we were in Orleans - Institut d’Art Visuel to run a one week workshop with students called “Designer-Trash”, which aimed to find new ways of thinking about the issue of waste. Waste carries negative values and as waste production grows, the more there is a need to hide it from view and to destroy it. But what other ways can we treat waste? The overarching theme put forward by the director of the school for this week of workshops was ‘discretion’… which fits well to the way we usually like to think about waste.

The workshop was a space for waste utopias to become a reality : from industrial design products made from waste products and activist posters to artistic and ironical happenings in public spaces.
