Trash talk

Episode151 . Wed, 27 Nov 2019

Featuring: dina Amin

Episode abstract

1. What constitutes garbage is highly subjective, with some individuals or societies tending to discard things that others find useful or restorable. How do you define trash?
2. Do you consider your work as an act of Upcycling? How and why; either ways
3. What made you connect Stop motion and disassembling things to be an interesting exploration? What is the process like and what do you do exactly?
4. Is there any conscious effort of showing environmentally correct use of objects which people then tend to discard; there by showcasing it value? Or is it still a fun exercise? Or do you try and illustrate a story by deconstructing & humanising objects and narrating the object’s point of view?
5. How did it all land up in getting real work? If you can share any interesting case study or collaborations?

Fun question: You have problem with capital D. How do you deal with autocorrect and grammar fixes done by technology?
