We live in the badlands. Desierto de Tabernas is the only real semi-desert in Europe. With its barren slopes and eroded ravines, it has a surreal, almost lunar quality. When it rains, it is
apocalyptical.


Walking the dry riverbeds, we were amazed at the amount of stuff that people just leave there. This is a certified nature reserve, hola! Perhaps it is ancient tradition, drop it and rely on the torrents to make it someone else’s problem.


Like stray dogs, we began taking it home, until the pile behind the house took on artistic dimension. One sunny day, we would fill it in the car and dispose of it properly. And then it dawned on us.


One man’s garbage, another man’s vision.
