The project Wasteland transforms garbage like old chairs and tables which where left on the doorsteps in social housing areas in Frankfurt into new objects. This is done by people who are living in the areas and students from university. The aim is to learn more about materials, the consumption system and the possibilities of recycling. The project wants to encourage people to improve their own living environment and form a new community.
