Trash is the new NFT collection from The Visceral Glitch. These glitches are a celebration of discarded objects, and lives lived that the world has forgotten about.
I first heard about Trash Art at NFT NYC 2021. The concept is to take discarded elements and repurpose them into something new. I was curious if I could find trash work taking a picture of and glitch it up.
It was trash day and there was an abundance of garbage all over the streets. Mountains of trash bags became landscapes and large trash items became shapes and textures. The trash was calling, and I was listening.
That night I made my first Trash Art glitch. There was something cheeky and mischievous about creating this glitch. It felt wrong to make something beautiful out of what people were throwing away. That’s when I knew it was right.
I invite those who feel put upon by the world and left out in the cold to consider trash is the artifact of our rich and varied existence. By repurposing it, I reconstruct it and invite you to reconsider your role as a co-creator of trash.
