This work reimagines the digital trash bin, found on computer desktops, by marrying it with an outdoor basketball court and a toilet bowl, to lend it physical corporealism. It is a response to the need to put things away and also explores the content of things that needs to be trashed.

I am interested in humour, play, the invisibility of systems we encounter every day and the ironic imperfect knowledge of these systems. In my work, I always try to hijack systems with systems of my own.
I would also like to include a quote by someone famous in this statement but Google just cannot find it now.
