Part 4 of the Recyclers series takes us to the hidden corners of Taipei – not far from the busy streets – where Nikki Schuster brings to life found garbage as animated neo-organisms. At times playing music, at others singing or acting theatrically, these colorful beings keep the attention of the camera and flow into the urban ambient soundscape and environment. The city as a meta-evolutionary playground of animation.
