SUBMISSION: The biggest mark
It’s time to confess that plastic is one of the biggest parts of our daily life. Obviously now plastic is the largest mark of humanity.
Physical translation of the project is wall tiles. The tiles are made out of PS – polystyrene. Tiling pattern represents the molecular formula of this material. The idea is to give people the feeling that plastic is already embedded in our lives. Because we cannot avoid it, we should somehow deal with it.
The small-scale display of this project is a plastic cube that looks like a fossil. Layers of this stone represent 6 types of recyclable plastic.
