Science of the Secondary #12 - Bin


Science of the Secondary is an inquisitive approach towards uncovering implicit conditions that exist in our experience of the everyday. When speaking of the term ‘secondary’, we are referring to conditions and sensations that human beings are not conscious of in their day-to-day interaction with things and the immediate surroundings. Accumulating this rich and boundless field of knowledge, the research hopes to draw upon a renewed sensibility towards living, with much excitement and freshness.

To remove their rubbish, human beings have long since relied on the bin: they fill it up with all sorts of garbage and when it is more or less full and the stench becomes unbearable, one unfortunate individual will have the dreaded task of emptying it. It is curious, however, that in parts of the world untouched by man, bins are neither seen nor heard of and before our minds start conjuring scenes of animals burning their own garbage every night, a better explanation would be that the concept of rubbish simply do not exist in nature and bin!
