The Science Museum isn't known for trashy displays, but if this show sounds like real garbage to you, well, that’s because it is. As part of the museum's Climate Changing programme, 30 days worth of waste generated by the institution’s staff, visitors, contractors and projects will be collected and investigated in this two-part operation. For one month, from Monday June 16 till Tuesday July 15, artist Joshua Sofaer will invite visitors to participate in collecting, sorting, photographing and documenting the rubbish to create a day-to-day archive. Phase two of the project, from Wednesday July 23 until Sunday September 14, will explore the value and beauty that can be found in the waste we produce; displays will show materials at various stages of processing and highlight the impact and fate of things that are thrown away.
