Ben Nathan is the fifth artist to be taking part in the Artist Dis-Placement project at ZK/U. He is visiting the TSR metal recycling company in Berlin for six months.
Through his project the Artist aims to gain an understanding into the recycling process of ferrous, household scrap and other more valuable types of metal. He is interested in the specialist processes and machinery used to transform the variety of metal that comes into the plant with a particular interest in the informal resource recovery or waste picker. It is the Artist’s method to gather this information through conversations, drawings, photos and videos made whilst on site. The work produced will be shared with site workers at TSR and those who deliver and dispatch material from the scrapyard.
