Trash Flow, 2022
HD Video, sound, 21 min
In Trash Flow, Bjarland observes rubbish heaps on the streets in an urban setting. The camera is slowly panning the waste materials close up, encountering broken furnishings, household items, old clothes, building materials, pillows, shoes, decoration items, face masks, empty packaging materials and so forth. In what seems like an endless flow of random stuff, the viewer is confronted with the flip side of our consumer society where all objects have lost their commercial value and are now temporarily displayed before continuing their journey to the waste processing facilities.
