Did you know? #42

Did you know that all of our past exhibitions are available online?

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.
