Will the street junkmen be collecting digital scrap from the garbage containers one day? If every object has a service life, how long is the digital’s? The Internet’s? Like plastic or paper, could it have a recycle value at the end of it’s lifespan? Will it be something more valuable than seeking food remains in garbage cans? A pair of old shoes (junkman) pulling his ‘electronic junk car’ will move like ‘z’ tracks on the exhibition floor. The ‘z’ motion here simulates the junkman tracking from one trash barrel to another alternately. A series of photographs of the street junkmen will accompany the work.
