My work is solely inspired by the fear of plastics overwhelming Earth. The best way to draw attention to this fear is to let people glimpse what could be. I connect drastically different futures with one plastic bottle in my work. Two close, but widely different paths for the world are shown. The thin surface of the bottle shows how the future of the world can be quickly and easily altered as just one plastic bottle in the ocean can make a big difference. Likewise, as it surrounds the dystopian city within, the plastic bottle conveys how the material can be used for good, yet, it will become harmful once it’s reached its prime. There are severe consequences if we don’t take care of our home.
