Artist: Fairy Turner
Projection: Disco Bin
The rusted keeper of trash turned sassy disco enthusiast. Imagine a reality where a rubbish bin might illuminate in the night, beckoning you to dance to its tune on your walk home. As the disco bin pulsates to the music within, it becomes a playful site of interaction and fun.
