'This is Temporary' is a project from artist Shay Castel that introduces a speaker, a clock and a light made from paper pulp, offering an exploration of common household objects that are often purchased as permanent fixtures for the home.
This project was created for Castel's thesis at the Holon Institute of Technology, introducing materials that are encased in biodegradable containers. As products that are designed to look temporary, the items are meant to bring on less guilt when they reach the end of their useful life to a consumer.
Inspired by the film 'Plastic China,' This is Temporary creates a strong dialogue about consumer waste and consumerism. As Castel describes: "At first glance, you know they're not going to last for long."
