Justin the dustbin is an animatronic puppet used as a critical device.
Controlled either as an interactive live performance or as a prerecorded narrator, the project introduce a character that comments on the pageantry of a given context outlining its ideological contradictions.
Reclaiming its voice as the only permanent object in our surroundings that is not trashed away. Justin is an observer of the ever-changing nature of values in design. In between a punishing voice and fellow companion, the character narration and performances establishes a reality check to who it confronts. By observing our contradictory behaviour and the human eagerness of the new for the sake of it.
