Don’t be a Tosser, Put it in the bin - Arts Research Project

‘Don’t be a Tosser, Put it in the bin’, is Natalia Waaka’s Research Project. She is a Year Three Bachelor of Applied Media Art Student. Her research project is aimed at creating social awareness that there is a litter problem here in Invercargill.

Natalia will be pushing her trolley cart around the streets of Invercargill, collecting rubbish that is dispersed along the footpaths and side parks within Invercargill’s littered streets.

“My project is not about me going around picking up other peoples litter, but I will be inspiring, informing and educating the public on their responsibility as a consumer to correctly dispose of their rubbish.”

Part of engaging the public sense of ‘are they on board campaign’, is that she will be handing out badges. These badges will state ‘Don’t be a Tosser, Put it in the bin, Follow on Facebook’, to help engage the public views about what they think and feel about this problem.

The rubbish collected along Natalia’s campaign will be utilized as part of her art medium to create a stimulating sculpture focused on the consumer’s consumption of by-product packaging.
