A collaborative side project by designers Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman, Quotes on Shit is a collection of discarded objects that were repainted using solid colors and given a voice through witty but vulgar words. In their own words:
“We feel bad for this abandoned and rejected shit, so we want to rescue them and breathe new life into them by giving them a voice with words. We want to turn old shit into new shit, and give them a second chance to be loved and find a new home.“
People constantly collect, buy, steal, trade, use, and throw things away. Have you ever wondered what happens to all these trash after they wind up in the garbage, streets, landfills, or even junk shops? Luckily, some of them ended up in the hands of creative geniuses such as Walsh and Goodman.
If you love one of the artworks and want one for yourself, let them know why through their Instagram feeds @timothygoodman or @jessicawalsh. They’ll be giving them away to lucky, random individuals. You may also send the artists your old, unwanted things at email@example.com so they can make it look new again.
