Special Exhibition: Super Sorted Garbage Bins Project

Installation view at Tokyo Biennale 2023 (Etoile Kaito Living Pavilion)

The Super Sorted Garbage Bins Project will hold a new special exhibition after participating in the Tokyo Biennale 2023.


Isn't the cycle of things around the human world divided in our consciousness by the existence of trash cans? This is the question that inspired the creation of the Super Sorted Garbage Bins Project. We consumers merely own the space between the product shelf and the trash can. We cannot see beyond the trash can. Thinking about extreme sorting is also to be conscious of garbage.
