BIN

Year: 2015


Practically wherever you go you you will never be that far from a public litter bin. In the small Belgian town of Ghent there are many examples of this utilitarian container. Lashed to a street lamp looking out over a dull stretch of water it was evident the bin needed a change of scene.


Employing a screw driver and bolt cutters the bin and it's contents were spirited into an awaiting vehicle. From there it embarked upon a road-trip through the Belgian and French countryside before taking in the view of the White Cliffs of Dover on arrival into the UK. It was then driven the final leg to my home city of Bristol where upon it was installed with a prime view of Isambard Kingdon Brunel's historic suspension bridge which spans the Avon gorge - a popular and defintive landmark of the City.


Returning to the bin's holiday location just over a week later, it was nowhere to be seen.
