Rear loader

Rear loader

Custom design for Edmonton Arts Council and Edmonton Waste Management, 2012. While the rear loader is of traditional design requiring the crew to manually load garbage into the rear themselves, it also a hybrid vehicle. Every time the brakes are applied, it generates power for itself.

Top loader

Custom design for Edmonton Arts Council and Edmonton Waste Management, 2012. Unlike the Rear loader, the Top loader does not require the crew to exit the vehicle to collect garbage. Instead, it uses its 'arms' to collect the waste bins and throw them over top, feeding itself.

Designed to promote and bring awareness to Edmonton’s Waste Management program, the two trucks started as simple drawings exploring possibilities rather than reality. Through the use of vinyl the two units have gone from inanimate containment units to something with a possibility of life. With the sole purpose of waste disposal, the robots are fueled by our need to dispose of the obsolete and the forgotten, creating an unbreakable bond between man and machine.
