Ephemera III – The destruction of physical typography by Bogidar Mascareñas

Ephemera III – “What has been accumulated will be exhausted” relies on the fact that the enormous amount of elements presented which will be burned.

Ephemera I – The destruction of physical typography by Bogidar Mascareñas

“What has been built up will collapse” is the first poster of the ephemera collection. In this case the message was made out of jelly, a casting process and the experimentation of the characteristics of the material. Thus, the process starts with the creation of the molds that later on were filled with the jelly and solidified at low temperatures. Finally, the goal of the poster arrived once was exposed: Due to the temperature (20º) the material melt and the poster collapsed.

Short Circuit by Gaspard Tiné-Berès

Cheap household appliances such as kettles, coffee makers or toasters, are typical of goods that are thrown away while in perfect working order. But, even when damaged, the electrical components unlike the casing are easily fixable; therefore, landfill sites are increasingly becoming sources of viable and perfectly working complex electrical and electronic components. Moreover, these same components represent a major waste problem, due to their composite and toxic nature.
