Life of Trash

A quantifiable way to determine where our trash goes.

Citizen Cyberscience,Understanding Networks

Where does trash go after it reaches the trash can? Is it possible to follow the path of trash after we throw it away? Life of Trash attempts to map the path of everyday trash by using cellular technology to relay location data throughout the trash process cycle. This location data is streamed into a live map which allows the user to gather up-to-date information on the current location of their trash.
