Science of the Secondary – Bin


“To remove their rubbish, human beings have long since relied on the bin: they fill it up with all sorts of garbage and when it is more or less full and the stench becomes unbearable, one unfortunate individual will have the dreaded task of emptying it. It is curious, however, that in parts of the world untouched by man, bins are neither seen nor heard of and before our minds start conjuring scenes of animals burning their own garbage every night, a better explanation would be that the concept of rubbish simply does not exist in nature and therefore…no bin!”

Science of the Secondary: Bin is the twelveth edition in the series of ongoing research conceived and developed by Atelier HOKO.
