The Big Trash Animals series revolves around the representation of animals on a large scale, built almost exclusively with garbage (as Bordalo says, the same material that kills them), aiming to provoke a different look at our consumerist habits. The goal is to generate an emotional relationship between these large animals and those who observe them, seeking to promote the questioning of our acts and habits and, who knows, their subsequent transformation and evolution. Regarding the choice of the animals represented, Bordalo’s choice is often to go for native species, species in danger, in extinction or even extinct.
