Temporary Tendencies
4 November 2017

What would a cube look like if we used your daily waste as the material? How big would the cube be in cubic volume?

Temporary Tendencies is an installation exploring themes of pluralism created within the relationships of machine and human. This body of work is presented through the lens of a fictitious, location-specific small scale production plant that transforms the surrounding waste-streams into one-inch cubes with the assistance of a tool that uses additive manufacturing techniques to fuse layers of material together. New Grounds sets up shop and works within the neighboring half-mile radius, rummaging through garbage, and adapting to area specific materials. Its primary function is to pulverize discarded waste into powder, then transform the aggregates with the collaborative assistance of computer controlled equipment and performed human action. The machine is not designed to work independently with these site specific materials, so to operate, a improvised, yet anticipated collaboration is performed.
