Bold Quotes On Monochrome Objects!

Quotes on Shit is a project by designers Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman. On the baseline “Old shit is turned into new shit”, they give life back to meaningless and old objects by bringing a good dose of colour and a quote full of humour and wit which is then written in bold lettering. With Jessica and Timothy's creative thoughts on each piece, it certainly makes you take a step back and think. As an old video cassette is a worthless piece of kit nowadays. But one that says “I used to matter?” That raises up emotions and memories not your average redundant VHS tape would!

Which is the whole point, according to Walsh and Goodman. “We all use so much shit. We collect shit, buy shit, steal shit, trade shit and then throw shit away. So what happens with all this old shit? Is there a life after it leaves our hands? Shit winds up in our garbage, on our streets, in our landfills, and in our junk shops. We feel bad for this abandoned and rejected shit so we’re rescuing these objects and breathing new life into them by giving them a voice with words” (via PastaMagazine)
