No Leftovers No Left Out
It’s time to redefine the notion of ‘waste’, and the new definition should focus on everything that lives. Big words, so an example is needed: the public passage that Ensemble Studio built in Santiago de Compostella in Spain out of waste material from a quarry and recycled CDs. The passage forms the border between a private garden and a public park. Stones loosely stacked into classical geometric shapes are positioned on the side of the park. Rows and rows of CDs form a translucent yet closed rear wall. The film captures how the passage is used to rest, wander and play. What sticks out most of all is the serenity of this object made of waste.
