Plastic Planet

About this project

Plastic is everywhere. The man-made substance litters roads, fills oceans and has entered the tissue of all living things. Humans transformed nature to make our lives more convenient, only to leave a massive mess for the next generation. What are the steps to solve this crisis? Like the scavenger animals I sculpt, I collect a variety of colored plastic bags from my friends and family. I strip and twist the bags until they fold into a texture like fur or grass, and meticulously apply each piece. With the help of my extended community, the Plastic Planet series diverted thousands of plastic bags from the environment.
