Cosmetic wax is used for peeling off hairs and mostly for aesthetic reasons. What happens after when it fulfils its purpose? Today for hygienic reasons the wax is not recycled in the waxing salons furthermore for privacy prevention towards the clients and their DNA the waxing salons can not allow third parties to use the waste material even if it was still having all the potential qualities to work and think with.

The "Cave Of Privacy", the second project of my graduation projects reflects on the "dead end" of the material and how it is perceived in our society. My leading question during the process was to understand if used cosmetic wax could become a potential material after it’s original purpose, or we might be too obsessed with our privacy for such.
