Party Cans is a collaborative, engaging, and scalable installation which challenges the perception of an everyday, often overlooked object: the public recycling bin. With the influx of people crowding the streets to experience BLINK artwork, litter and waste will also increase. KCB is partnering with 3CDC to activate the corner recycling bins and encourage BLINK participants to pick up after themselves.

When a passerby tosses an item in the bin, a motion sensor activates a LED light show and sound effects are emitted from around the can, creating a moment of delight and surprise for the user. This display encourages attendees to engage, keeping the BLINK area clean. Party on!
