Gomi dashi means “to take out the trash” in Japanese. It is an unremarkable, monotonous task every morning. For the artist and ethnographer, however, the coordinated effort to make a phone call during these moments has transformed them into ethnographic time and space. The artist responds with images to the ethnographer’s written interpretation, creating a synchronisation of perspectives on the phone as a frame and window.
