Who determines the end of things? Does an object completely lose function after being used? What does a leftover object represent?

These were the questions that led me to make this publication, which proposes a graphic investigation into the functionality of discarded or simply forgotten objects.

Are the remains and remainders objects, that have lost their meaning or are they undetermined, unconcluded objects, longing for a new meaning or connotation?

Immersed in the activity of designer, I asked myself about the usefulness and functionality of objects that often attracted my attention on the streets. Living in a city like São Paulo, we are constantly surrounded by buildings under construction. Buckets are places where everything that no longer serves is thrown, thus becoming a great “cauldron
of oblivion”.
