The lid has been lifted on human wastefulness, but what next? Following the lead of Australian cult-hero, the bin chicken, we delve into our garbage and find opportunities within our disposable culture.

While the global waste statistics are sobering, we are now seeing emergent ecologies that thrive on human wastefulness, drinking water recycled from toilets and furniture made from coffee grounds. Waste brings new opportunities, human innovations and creative solutions.

Science Gallery Melbourne will highlight experimental and creative ways to tackle our ever growing excess of waste through transdisciplinary and collaborative practices in its third pop-up program.

DISPOSABLE will feature¬†outdoor installations, pop-up gallery exhibits, performances, experiments and workshops. Locations will include The University of Melbourne’s Parkville and Southbank campuses, along with unique sites throughout Melbourne.
