„Recyclers“ is an animation film series that portrays the diverse cultural, social and urban fabrics of different cities by means of experimental animation.
In different metropolises characteristic urban sounds are recorded. Objects, like litter from the streets, packaging of consumer goods and typical local products, are collected. “Recycled” figures are created with these objects and animated to the sound recordings. Each “Recyclers” film is divided into several scenes, in which the trash-creatures react with humour to spontaneities and characteristic impressions of the urban ambience. The environment is thereby subjected to close examination from an unusual perspective. The filmic results are experimental, documentary portraits of different metropolises, so far from Paris, Buenos Aires, Berlin, Taipei and Mexico City.
