The Brazilian design duo architect Azusa Murakami and artist Alexander Groves of Studio Swine, created the Can City, a mobile foundry fueled by waste vegetable oil, that can produce on location various sand casted objects, using recycled aluminium cans from the streets of São Paulo. Check out the above short film on Can City project by Juriaan Booij.
Artists describing the project:
In a city with some 20 million residence the waste is on a massive scale, however over 80% of the recycling is collected by an informal system of independent waste collectors known as Catadores who pull their handmade carts around the streets. Can City creates a system where their livelihoods can extend beyond rubbish collection. Where the majority of carbon cost is in the transportation of goods rather than their production – Can City explores the possibility of industry returning to our cities, using free metal and free fuel to produce an endless range of individually crafted aluminum items adaptable to customisations and able to ‘cast on demand’.
