Description
Can City Studio Swine has made a mobile foundry that smelts aluminum cans using waste vegetable oil collected from local cafes as a fuel. Waste collectors known as Catadores mine the streets for materials to produce a furniture series with vernacular aesthetic, providing a portrait of the streets. The Can Stools are made simply with sand casting technique using readily available construction sand from local building sites, and by casting an assemblage of objects found on the streets. The furnace and the tools are made with salvaged materials and a scrap beer barrel. Can City suggests a future possibility where Catadores (waste collectors) can adopt this system to make use of free metal and free fuel to produce an infinite range of individually crafted aluminum items. 'Can City' was made for Coletivo Amor de Madre Gallery, São Paulo. The project was made possible with the generous support of Heineken. The Film was made by Juriaan Booji.
