Join in your hands in making with plastics Sea PET Jellyfish Mobiles from the reused single-use plastics; fruit mesh, bottle tops, and bottle rings and colourful cable ties with Katarina from KraalD and guest artist T.J. Thorn. Let us make lush plastic voices in this oceanic underwater world affair together! This workshop is helping raise those silent plastic pollution voices heard in a joyful making manner.
In order to have all alphabetical ingredients for the oceanic soup for jellyfish bloom to thrive, bring along a smile and small plastic toys to weave into the making story.
Plastic pollution is hard to understand and super wicked to reverse and thus requires new ways of engaging with plastics materiality. In this design and art activist workshop, we visually co-create and in hands on making evoke and share some of my thoughtful explorations that are offering a more than human perspective on the oceanic plastic pollution.
I also invite the participatory stakeholders and audience to visualise the ocean in novel ways – as the living landfill. In the Sea PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic series, I am gazing in, beyond technocratic and technological solutions addressing plastics waste management, encouraging to envision plastics entanglement in oceans, while engaged in material tactics of single-use plastics reuse.
“I” trash, therefore “we” are.
