Rikkert Paauw, Jet van Zwieten and Hein Lagerweij of FOUNDation Projects transform for some time now ordinary dumpsters into a unique space – with items they recover from dumpsters. In their hometown Utrecht a fantastic series of dumpsterhouses were constructed last year. The results were set up in the city centre, where they became a kind of small village. On the inside and outside of the buildings video footage of the construction process was being projected accompanied by music and soundscapes produced with field recordings. Foundation, a concept by Rikkert Paauw and Jet van Zwieten is about collecting waste material and old furniture from the neighborhood, moving it to a waste container, reusing it to turn it into a small house (with the container as the foundation), to become a temporary meeting place for neighbours and passers-by. Also visit their picture gallery on flickr and their vimeo channel.
