What a waste - collaborative artwork, that wasn't meant to be
Waste is collaborative art by accident.

We all leave scraps, trash and litter behind - and the wind, brooms and cleaners gather the bits and pieces in new unpredictable patterns.

The patterns are similar all over the world - yet the details of the wastebaskets, the wrappings and the leaves falling from the trees add a certain local twist to every pattern.

None of the photos in this album have been manipulated, nor have I changed the waste-patterns in the streets - they are all 'au natural'.

They are pieces of art that was never meant to be - yet they are everywhere.
