Cup City, a temporary interactive lounge, was constructed over the course of the 3-day Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACLFest) using 41 Rent-a-Fence panels, zip ties and approximately 25,000 pieces of garbage. The lounge walls were filled with the used bottles, cups and cans by concert-goers, many of whom spent hours arranging different patterns. Cup City engaged the festival’s stream of consumption, diverting approximately 25,000 pieces of garbage that accumulated in its ever-changing walls.
