This first title in the Street Report series looks at one of the most ubiquitous yet unobserved object on our streets—public bins. Atelier HOKO’s encounters reveal how unexpected or improper use or interactions with public bins, no matter how minor, are rich areas for study and observation, sometimes humorously so. This well describes the role of a street reporter, to make sense of phenomena on the streets and find delight and meaning in doing so. With this book, we hope readers will go on their own note-taking discoveries whenever they are on the way to dispose rubbish.
