Growing Trash is part of a project created at the School of Machines entitled “Hidden Communications”. This trash can aims to expose the ways in which objects can contain embedded forms of communication.
The can grows taller as it gets filled as a subtle way of conditioning the user to not take out the trash – more space is added so the trash doesn’t need to be taken out.
This project explores how communication can occur in non-verbal ways and over a different time-scale.
