Sculptural Installations From Landfill Waste by Vincent Skoglund

Swedish Artist Vincent Skoglund creates creative sculptural installations out of trash from landfills he found locally. He assembles these monolithic and orderly structures directly on site, and then photographs them documenting the bits and pieces in a new context.
Vincent installations invites viewers to think about our consumerist culture and our relationship with our environment.
For Vincent, there are two sides to consumerism: There’s the shiny in-store experience, where shelves and racks of mint-condition products await purchase and a new home. And there’s the afterlife, where all those once-new objects get discarded and hauled off to landfills. Vincent prefers the latter.

To me, the dump is intriguing. It’s one of the most interesting places. The randomness is so vast. Colors and materials in different states of decay, coming together. I’d rather spend any day walking around on a dump than in a shopping mall.
