Light on waste

For this project I explored what value visitors of the exhibition (Making Believe, London (2011)) would give an object made completely from reclaimed materials by exploring the possibilities of scaling and re-imagining the way we think about waste materials. I was interested whether an object could be seen as design, and not a form of ‘recycled art’ if I were to change the function and use specific materials. If by ‘redesigning waste’ and selling it could I, as a designer, be able to make a living by doing so?
During the exhibition I asked visitors to bid in a false auction, and to give their opinion on the matter.
