Adam Basanta’s Every Beloved Object is a multimedia exhibition exploring the intersection between ancient ruins, recycling technology, and contemporary waste. Fragments are valued in archeology because they uncover more about human behaviour than lavish gems or relics. Trash becomes artifact. A potshard may reveal archaic customs around communal gathering, a broken seal may illustrate sacred mythology or trace trading routes across newly divided landscapes. If garbage tells us the most about ancient people, what can our waste tell us about our current behaviours?
