Rubbish Art Given Away – Tomoko Takahashi

An installation of 7,600 pieces of junk has been given away at the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens, UK. Japanese born artist Tomoko Takahashi spent three days installing the work, titled “My Playstation”. The curator of the gallery said Takahashi was “really interested in how with rules comes order, and how you break out of order, and the relationship between order and disorder.”
On the last day of the exhibition visitors were given raffle tickets and lined up to collect their piece of junk, which included old sewing machines, old computers and stuffed birds.
Not only does it attract a lot of publicity and attention, but they got out of having to clean the mess up when the exhibition finished by getting visitors to take it away. guardian
