Garbage cans are conceived to contain products that are supposed to be forgotten, to disappear from the face of earth. When half-buried garbage cans have nothing inside but black surfaces, they become holes in space that will be filled as time goes by, be it by plans, animals, or, even by human beings. Since scatology and utopia are always related, Untitled (Tomorrow Colonies) introduces a vertigo in the landscape, that is the symptom of metamorphosis time, of a time that produces an infinite delay in the definition of every existent being.
