The first notions that usually come to mind when considering garbage, waste and deterioration are generally negative. With that in mind and a strong belief in the ordinary object and its ability to be transformed into a work of art, the Re-Bench project presents benches made from aluminium cans and placed in public areas. In this way, utilized waste materials – products of human actions – such as cans, are transformed from their initial disposition to an unconventional usage, without rebuilding them with complex and intensive processes.
