Description of the container:

The design includes Prague’s legendary characters: Mydlář the executioner, the fire man, the water goblin from Čertovka, the devil, a headless knight and a modern take on the golem. All of them are carrying e-waste to the container so that it doesn’t terrify them at home or on Prague’s streets. This design was redone a number of times, the same as the final installation on the container. In the original and unpublished design, figures were depicted for which ASEKOL was unable to obtain consent for their use from their creators. A similar fate befell the design for the container in Liberec, which contained a depiction of a structure that was not approved by the copyright holder and therefore the Liberec design that was published and then installed was different than the original design.

Address where the container is located:

Na Ovčinách 7, Prague 7

“I got to work on the project through my friend Khoma, with whom I enjoy working, so there was no hesitation! For me, the bonus is that through the five designs I provided taught me something new about the regions and their regional cities. Moreover, I’d say sorting waste is a kind of national sport for us, and why not make it at least a few containers nicer, right! ;)”
