Zuzanna, Raphael and David are currently working on a future wastes installation. The goal of this project is to visualize the results of a study undertaken by the Christian Doppler Laboratory on anthropogenic resources at TU Vienna. A new methodology on how to quantify the material stock in the bulk of Vienna’s buildings shows which materials and how much of them is currently in use in the construction sector of our capital. Our installation wants to raise awareness by visualizing material stocks hard to grasp because of their incredibly large quantities. When we think of waste we often think of short lived consumer goods and don’t consider that all material that surrounds us is inevitably going to become waste if we do not find a way to keep them in a loop.
