Most of us create a fair amount of rubbish and a few months ago artist Dan Tobin Smith put out a 'call for kipple' — essentially a project to gather unused or cast-off items and re-purpose them as an art installation.

The project has now been completed and the artist has filled his studio in a colour co-ordinated rainbow of rubbish that will be on display for nine days as part of London Design Festival.

The use of rubbish and found objects to create art is nothing new, but Tobin Smith's work is brighter and overwhelming in scale. We've included some installation photos of what the final output looks like and there'll even be a dinner club held within the installation, in line with the theme of the exhibition.

The First Law of Kipple by Dan Tobin Smith can be seen throughout the London Design Festival at 52c Whitmore Road, N1 5QG between 10am and 6pm, 13-21 September 2014. Entry is free. The dinner club is put on by Funthyme, there are two sittings on 13 and 16 September and the cost is £75 per person.
