TREASURED TRASH was inspired by the notion of relics which raises up the question of concentration and value of everyday objects. It quilted eight people’s personal details in tedious non-readable english and a folding-guide design line. Once it was been folded, it becomes a superfluous rubbish paper folded unconsciously from paper heap. The configuration of information and the camouflage of the postcard functionality provides it as an experiment exploring the gap between trash and treasure.
