The Value of Garbage

#thevalueofgarbage : between symbolic value and materiality | design project by Andreas Angelidakis
"Even nowadays, as Greece is navigating its’ second major financial crisis, one can sense that the country is a collage between the glorious and somewhat virtual ancient past, and the live real present…As a result of these notes on aesthetics and history, we devised the space of Feeder, at the Breeder project space, as a combination of two spaces. One space is inhabited by a pristine white lacquer system of modular seating and dining units, the other by mismatched, used chairs and tables found in the area of Metaxourgeio. The two spaces are collaged together, as a continuously evolving ruin where chairs become benches, tables extend to become columns, new seats are born from old, and richly woven traditional kilims are laid on glossy white surfaces, in an architecture that continually copy-pastes between the virtual ancient past and the real folklore present.” (Feeder, at the Breeder project space) via andreasangelidakis.blogspot.com
