If you do not contemplate and reflect on the disappearance, it will always hurt more in the future. Garbage doesn’t disappear when thrown away, it accumulates. This zinebook and experimental website will make people realize the trash crisis.
What’s the inspiration behind this?
This project sprouted from the daily struggle that I face every day.
Whenever I’m out home, “There is garbage everywhere.” Fastfood wrappers blowing around the street, cans, waterbottle, napkins, masks... etc everywhere. I am NEVER free from the garbages.
I step on it every single day.Therefore, I decided to have a 4 week journey of taking photos of the trashes that are on the street to capture various moments.
1 month Journey (06.01 ~ 06.31. 2021)
Picking up the trashes that are on the street and throwing away to the closet trashcan.
Locations I visited (New York) Pier 36, Central Park, Columbus Circle, Battery Park, East Village
Result There are more trashes on the street than I expected. Almost every minute, I was able to find the trash.
