Plastic Reflectic

The interactive installation ”Plastic Reflectic“ shows you that everyone can influence the plastic soup with their behaviour.It turns you in the plastic version of yourself and lets you control the hundreds of pieces of ocean plastic.

When you step in front of it plastic parts of plastic soup plastic rises from the black water reflecting you. It takes the plastic soup that normally is floating miles out of the sea and puts it in front of our feet. Reflecting our behaviour and provoking food for thought. Showing that your actions in plastic use have direct impact on the growing plastic soup.

Technical build

The interactive installation was created for the Plastic Soup Foundation and the dutch newspaper de Volkskrant by artist Thijs Biersteker and created with Front404 and Better Future Factory where we designed the machinery and helped to source the plastic pollution bits from all plastic islands floating in the oceans arround the world.
