This is Just Rubbish is a cultural critique born from a desire to re-establish a connection between users and objects. Formed from a mapped collection of site specific images and objects, the project is a reflection on two contemporary urban phenomena: the infatuation with a vintage/analogue aesthetic and rubbish invading public spaces – both symptoms of the contradictions of our economy.
Pinhole cameras are created out of objects considered of no value during participatory site performances, starting in the Brick Lane area of London and spreading beyond. They are then left in situ with instructions for use and a link to the dedicated website. When online, photography lovers, or just curious passers by, can find further information about the project, a map showing the camera locations, the photographs uploaded and all they need to take part in the project.
