The Remaining Trash

this piece was constructed from notes people left at the trash launch party. all notes which were legible were transcribed as written and then alphabetised. some are what you think is trash, some are what others think is trash, some are what stop us from feeling like trash. all are words. because it’s the words that connect us. it’s your words that connect us. you gave us your words and here we give them back to you. separately your words mean something. together, they mean something else.


you left them behind like trash and here we give them back to you like treasure.


the remaining trash.
