The Flipside: Trash to Treasure

Most of our treasures end up in trash bins. Is there a reversed path? Look down at your feet, pick your favourite and enter the trash revolution.

What makes us view valuable material as trash? The Flipside: Trash to treasure installation takes us on a journey to examine material from different perspectives and to reflect on what really is the definition of trash. The path leads you amidst of waste piles and metamorphoses, where you have the opportunity to create and transform trash as a part of a new artwork. Welcome to the trash revolution!
