The Value of Garbage

#kamworkshops2011 | Map of Clear Broken Glass by Robert Smithson 

In 1969 near Vancouver, Robert Smithson attempted to create an earthwork which was never realized:“Island of Broken Glass.” In the middle of the Georgia Straight he intended to dump 100 tons of broken glass onto a small rock island called Miami Islet, completely covering its surface with the shattered material. Due to the swirl of protests stemming from environmentalists and anti-Americanists, the project was suspended by a governmental telegram at the last moment.

House of Contamination

#kamworkshops2011

One of the main references for the House of Contamination is Cedric Price’s „Fun Palace“, a future-embracing design for a cultural centre that is multifunctional, highly technological, and adaptable to multiple needs. The expectations towards technology have changed since then. Today’s keyword is peak oil, standing for a range of bleak scenarios of radical change in the political and economic world that are starting to contaminate the cycles of production and consumption. The House of Contamination is an update on the 20th century cultural center.

#kamworkshops2011 | a raft from art rubbish by KOKI TANAKA

I made a big trashy raft from left-over/art rubbish from the art center called BankART where next to the canal in yokohama. When I went to the space, i found there was a lot of art rubbish, probably a part of artwork, some kinds of materials there. I supposed to make new video for the theme of “video art” show, but i want to escape from dark room at that time. so I asked my friends to work with me to build up that raft. Then after, we went to the Tokyo bay once on it.

#kamworkshops2011 | WASTE MAN, by Antony Gormley, 2006

WASTE MAN was made over a six-week period at the end of summer 2006 out of about 30 tonnes of waste materials that had been gathered by the Thanet waste disposal services and by local people, and deposited in Dreamland, the area of Margate next to the sea and close to the station that had traditionally been the site of a vast funfair.
Some works are made in wax to be cast in bronze; this was made in domestic waste to be cast in fire.
For me this work was a collective body (similar to HAVMANN or the ANGEL OF THE NORTH) made from the raw materials of people’s home lives - beds, tables, dining chairs, toilet seats, desks, pianos and rubbish (all the limiting baggage of the householder),
