During Joshua's residency at Recology he re-appropriated discarded cultural detritus to envision potential multi-use objects. Much like a multitool, Short created objects that served several functions- waffle maker + CD player + remote control + wheels + chain + American flag = The Waffler etc.
This body of work centered around themes of survival, garbage, consumer products, the culture of waste, and the American spirit of invention.
