Every year, there are more than 242 million tons of plastic waste produced worldwide, however, only 9% of them can be rightly recycled.
Help our clients Ars Electronica and JKU Linz to design a public-engagement program that could raise people awareness of reducing and sorting rightly the using of single-use plastics.
A duplicatable program that engage people into transforming disposible plastics into throughtful pieces.
The project has been exhibition in Ars Electronica, Shenzhen OCT center and MIT Wiesner Gallery, which attracted more than 300 participant to contribute to the projects.
Every year, there are more than 242 million tons of plastic waste produced worldwide, however, only 9% of them can be rightly recycled. The substantial number of single-use plastics such as food packages, drink bottles, coffee cups are buried, submerged, volatilized into our land, ocean, and air, and have caused damages across geographic or political borders.
‘Plastic-it’ is a nationless art experiment initiated by collectives Plastic Heart, which asks people to explore the possibility of transferring waste plastic into the vehicles of ideas. Initiated during 2021 Ars Electronica in Linz, Plastic Heart collectives invited locals, students and artists to write on recycled plastics and make them ‘thoughtful pieces. The workshop makes the wasted material a nutrition of public engagement and a collective thinking process.
