Science of the Secondary – Rubbish


“It is true that the pleasures of consumption have always been accompanied by the burdens of rubbish. This can be considered a modern problem facing human beings today. Rubbish is integral and almost inseparable from the basic functions of our everyday. From the moment we reach out for a piece of tissue to the yearly ritual of unwrapping gifts, we produce rubbish so effortlessly (and sometimes unknowingly) Yet, neither its near-infinite variety of forms nor its ambiguous definition reflect the near-universal approaches we have all adapted towards the handling of rubbish…”

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