This project conceived from a collection of abandoned objects from different geographical contexts. These receipts and materials picked up trough the course of the last years are manifestations of fragmented experiences and memories. The installation explores the emotional impact of collecting abandoned bits of boxes, electronic devices, smashed cans, paper wrappers and other objects that most of us would consider off-duty waste.
The collection slowly grows into a fantasy around these objects: their potential history, present and future. The installation forms a layered landscape of their afterlife in which they evolve from casual souvenirs into treasures. This project invites the viewer to reconsider the implications of value that derive from the different actions attached to the objects. It questions our inclination to decide the fate of things from the moment we own them to the moment we disregard them.
