The trash can that talks back, reexamining our relationship with waste.


trash/talk is a trash can that talks back. In doing so, it attempts to bring awareness to the usually mindless act of throwing waste away.

Fairly mundane looking from the outside, trash/talk then catches the unwitting off guard by displaying images of the ultimate demise of trash in NYC.

Finally, trash/talk offers an alternative to wasteful products.

***NB. We may try to amend the project before the show to change the output, but the idea and technical are working beautifully.
