Art often aims to make a powerful statement that inspires intellectual activity through an avant-garde artistic language; the My Waste is Your Waste Exhibit at the Museum of the Image (MOTI) aims to create awareness through visual impact.
In collaboration with the Museu da Casa Brasilieria in São Paolo, the MOTI has brought together a variety of pieces that impact spectators through impressive installation and sculptural pieces that utilize waste as material for art. The aim of each piece is to question the value of waste, drawing attention to a diverse facet of consumption -- that of disposal.
"Because the growth of the global economy is based on consumption, we are often only conscious of what we buy, while being careless about what we preserve or dispose of," says Frame Magazine of the exhibit's theme. The My Waste is Your Waste Exhibit showcases the prevalent use of disposed materials that inspires thought in consumers on what is discarded and what it means for the environment.
