Description

PROCESS: Repurposed ashes and kiln slag from BOFA waste-to-energy plant, wedge into recycled clay. The deforming shape is made by gradually lowering the melting point of the clay, meaning that at the top its pure clay and at the bottom its transcending into being glass. The piece is then covered in a thick layer of white glaze and fired to 1260 °C. The frame is welded and coated with green spray-paint.

The Wasteland Project is nonfinite project in which Annelie Grimwade Olofsson collect and experiment with industrial byproducts and waste materials through a combined process of theoretical research, applied experimentation and artistic narration, in the creation of objects, which challenges our perception of material value and the human role as consumer.

Since the industrialisation of human society, humankind has become a geological force to be recon with, evidently capable to rival those of Earths own systems. As the global population increases so does the consumption of goods, and the creation of waste, which threatens earths ecosystems and by default our own existence.

The objects can be seen as material manifestations, unlike theoretical works that discuss but do not create Anthropocene objects.
