Garbage Totem No.2


Design 99

Garbage Totems is an exercise in neighborhood resourcing and construction. Design 99 will transform household materials (tires, mattresses, couches, chairs, toys, garages, houses) discarded in their Detroit neighborhood into formwork for a series of sculptural, functional constructions. The totems will include neighborhood landmarks and skateable sculpture, both pragmatic and playful at the same time.
