Precious Waste - Tokyo

Friday, 17 November 2023

Jinny Street Gallery, 2 Chome-31-5 Jingumae, Shibuya City, Tokyo, Japan

Precious Waste is a mixed-media exhibition that proposes jewelry pieces, photography, and recycled materials to guide the passengers through a transformation from trashed objects into artistic creations in a journey of 28 streetlamps at the Jinny Street Gallery.

The itinerant exhibition shows a retrospective of the ByLUDO design collections. Alongside artistic creations, viewers will see their original, unprocessed states.

Throughout her research, Ludo has investigated ways to recycle and reimagine all the components of keyboards as well as other e-waste. The design inspiration for the creation of the ByLUDO artistic pieces comes from the study of the material properties and their playful reconfiguration into wearable pieces.

In Precious Waste, each collection will be presented as an unused material, as a transformed artistic jewelry, and as a photographic reinterpretation. Thanks to the progression of these three steps, the visitor walking through the Jingumae 2-chome streetlamps can visualize all the components and their transformation, demonstrating the creative possibilities and artistic expressions for the environmental practice of reuse.

The transformation journey terminates with the showcase of four artistic frames from the exhibition “Wirescapes: Connected with the Urban Fabric” created together with Toto Tvalavadze in 2022.

The small installations combine urban photographs and recycle keyboard cases and other tech-pieces to create unique artistic frames, showcasing creative ways of mingling and mixing different disciplines.
