We love “basura”- garbage. Out of necessity, out of our conscience, and out of the heels of of our imagination– we love to transform it. Garbage has become our nearest and dearest material. We live in a world of waste. We have not yet entered a post-consumer world but If you can figure out what to do with tons of egg cartons and plastic bottles then that’s the kind of clever challenge we’re rolling up our sleeves for– everything else is a waste of our time– pun intended!
