Catalogue Note

It has always been obvious that society asserts its need for comfort through a compulsion for accumulation, which shows in shop windows, assembly lines and piles of trash. As a witness of our society, I have always been very involved in this cycle of pseudo-organic production of consumption and destruction. And for a long time, I have been worried about the invasion of our world by waste and trash as its most obvious material outcome.
