Landfill Totems

Description

Hainbach erected three huge sculptures (or totems) from obsolete, once high-end research equipment, taken from nuclear research labs, particle accelerators and grandfathers sheds. These forgotten relics of scientific progression and milestones of human evolution were repurposed by the artist and given a new lease of life in a completely unforeseen capacity; as musical instruments dubbed the Landfill Totems. The juxtaposition of religious, totemic imagery and electronic landfill is, in part, meant to act as a commentary on the environmental cost of progress; what was once the pinnacle of technology quickly becomes unviable and destined for the scrapheap except for the intervention of Hainbach, upcycling and redesigning them as pillars and shrines to the idea that progress doesnt always have to cause destruction.
