Based on recycled material that was acquired from the local waste disposal in Brixen, VILLA DEPONIE raises awareness of the relationship between the ecosystem and society by highlighting the consequences of human lifestyle choices. The material used in this small house was already recycled from the waste stream but meant to be used in the construction of a landfill – its display shows the aesthetic absurdity of waste management. >>
