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. QOS feel bad for this abandoned and rejected shit so they’re rescuing these objects and breathing new life into them by giving them a voice with words. They want to turn old shit into new shit, and give them a second chance to be loved and help find this shit a new home. QOS is a side project by Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman.
