Sticker Rescues Food

#13. Sticker Rescues Food

Food is be sold and eaten under rigid legal and customary rules: expiry dates and cosmetic imperfections result in the disposal of many still-edible foods. Edible Excess is a sticker identifying a dumpster as containing food. The sticker helps dumpster divers share resources and draws attention to the abundance and easy accessibility of useful excess; it also advertises the existence of a dumpster-diving community dependent on trash to those who produce it. Forays is a collaboration begun in 2007 at Eyebeam in New York City.
