8.3Bt total plastic production since 1950.

When people think of plastic, they probably imagine half-litter bottles or fields of straws. But nobody thinks of the recycled plastic that is a supply of hygiene medical equipment or cosmic radiation protection.
What is Plastic?
Is it an evil monster that destroys the environment that mankind depends on?
Or is it a friendly creature that represents the advancement of human civilization?
We want people to understand that there are two sides to plastic. Depending on the way that people treat it, plastic can transform into a monster or a helper. What we need is not a world without plastic. What we need is to figure out how to use plastic in a better way.
Our work consists of two part. The first one, is a conceptual film in which a performer creates a dialogue with different plastic objects and lead us to rethink about plastic usage and its destination.
The second one is an interactive installation – a creature- made of plastic waste, that will positively or negatively correspond to how people recycle.Our aim is to enhance environmental consciousness while developing habits of people and communities with a common environmental vision.
Our final aim is to enhance environmental consciousness while developing habits of people and communities with a common environmental vision.
