Polypropylene Cycle 2
9’ x 8’ x 10’
mixed media site specific installation
Featured in the exhibition Ebb and Flow at the ODD Gallery, Klondike Institute of Art
and Culture, Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada
I created this installation during the summer of 2012 while in residence at the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture in Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada. This video was captured from the exhibition "Ebb and Flow", which took place in the ODD Gallery.
The title and form of the installation are in reference to the idea that certain facets of the water cycle are filling more and more with plastic implements. This cycle also causes the plastic to break down more quickly, turning it into 'nurdles' (the industrial word that defines any plastic pellet or fragment, used in the manufacture of plastics, that is 3 mm in width or less).
