Intro
Garbage Pin Project started in January 2008 as a virtual process through the communication established, mainly by email, with the 90 artists that have participated. Garbage Pin Porject  will be shown internationally in an itinerant exhibition during 2009 and 2010.
Garbage Pin is a device jewel born from a distinctly urban concept of appropriation and reinterpretation of a daily use object: the rubbish bin.
Being of a kind of urban furnishing that exists in big numbers in the cosmopolitan set-up, the waste bin belongs with no doubt to the collective imagery, present in the day to day of any citizen as a reflection of a culture linked to an accelerated and increasing consumption like is ours.

The project has been subsidised by the Ministry of Portuguese Culture.
