The adaptability of an organism to changes in its environment or differences between its various habitats, existing in or caused by unnatural additives; the changing of our natural environment due to the impact of disposable plastic. Looking back at the impact of the choice of disposable plastic.
The Project: This installation brings the impact of consumer and corporate behavior regarding single-use-plastics into clear site. Beckoning the viewer to evaluate their own behavior with plastic consumption. In order to change what is manufactured and marketed we must first change the individual. To positively effect consumer behavior we’ve decided to alter the local landscape by installing 20ft to 30ft replicas of a plastic bottles, plastic disposable cups and straws into interior and exterior environments. These larger then life objects, when placed in landscapes unaccustomed to art grab hold of the viewer and ask them to look inward at their own habits.
By working with inflatables the project has the ability to change locations throughout a city or geographical area over the course of several days. Mirroring the same way plastics interact with our natural environment. Even mimicking the path of discarded plastic that eventually makes it's way to the ocean.
