Justin the Dustbin
Justin the dustbin is an animatronic puppet used as a device for institutional critique.

Controlled either as an interactive live performance or as a pre recorded narrator, the project intends to introduce a character that is an observer to the pageantry of a given context outlining its ideological contradictions.

Rendered as an outsider voice, an observer of the ever-changing nature of values in design, the project intruduces a character in between a punishing voice and fellow companion that establishes a reality check to who it confronts. Such as taking form of a dustbin, the only permanent object in our surroundings that observes the contradictions of our behaviour and the human eagerness of the new for the sake of it.
