Encore! re:formed plastics
This exhibition takes a look at the imaginative alternative solutions to
landfill and incineration as the final destination of our unwanted
plastics. It considers some of the ways we can lessen the impact modern
life has on the environment by innovative uses of design in plastic. It
looks at the imaginative ways plastics are given a new life and how in
their recycled form they can become a thing of beauty and of how from
the ashes of mass production a work of art can emerge. Transformed
beyond recognition plastics can be given a new identity. Where they once
began life as a container for liquids, repurposed they can become an
insulating fibre for the home or the body.
