D.E.T. - Decadent Expensive Trash: Trash is that which is pushed out of a system. That which is deemed undesirable and destined to fall into oblivion. Transcending materiality, trash becomes the culmination of a collective process that decides when something becomes devoid of value and meaning.
The frenetic and globalized rhythm we live under renders dynamics that accelerate the creation of waste, tangible or conceptual. Under such rampant structures, the pace of obsolescence becomes imminent and systematic.
D.E.T, intends to reflect on the ambiguous category of trash, and explore the creative potential within it. Instead of understanding it as an accumulation of unusable matter and ideas, art has the ability to upcycle what is left in the margins, and engage in a restorative process that creates new meanings.
