These are waste objects.

A contemporary notion of art (is irreducible really, but...) often centres around the cult of aestheticization (to use Benjamin’s ideas loosely). If an artwork were not pure aesthetic and had a practical use-value it would be designed. Based on this gross simplification of art: how to qualify waste? Even if the process is not resource-intensive, the investment of labour into a purely aesthetic (read: useless) product appears inevitably wasteful

The project minimizes material waste in favour of wasted labour, serving as an aestheticisation of labour.
