a trash, and others space editors
The presence of the trash in the house and its use indicate the permeability between the spacial set-up of the house and the “architecture” of an intangible computing space. If the trash already belonged to the household, this trash had made a detour through the margin of a computer desktop.
In computing, the trash (also known as the Recycle Bin in Windows and by other names in other operating systems ) is temporary storage for files that have been deleted in a file manager by the user, but not yet permanently erased from the file system.1
In the statement house, the trash is a space in itself with its own modalities. Similarly to the computer trash, it acts as an temporary editor. Items or texts can be stored inside temporarily revealing past actions while exhibiting unrecovered items.
It is a transient exhibition space, set between brackets, like a vitrine is another one with an underlining.
We once had a discussion with Tan Lin regarding a tweet sent from the account of the house mentioning the door as an editor where the open door partially hid a part of the text laying on the floor. Arrangement 7: The door edits 'cued multimodal learning in infancy' Tan claimed this was a poor idea of editing. Agreeing this was a poor form of editing I noticed the impoverishment drew attention on the displacement that had just occurred. That the house cuts a text. The simpler or poorer the editing was, the more visible the new actor, in this case the new space. As if to a loss of information corresponded more emplacement.
