plastic day

"Have a Plastic Day!" is an exhibition of artworks that were produced during the experimental research-creation class, "Making Art with Environmental Awareness." This class investigated issues related to plastics in the social world and in the natural environment. Students explored the history and material properties of plastics, more generally, and in the arts, more specifically. Did you know that virtually all the plastic that has ever been produced is still with us? That amount has recently been estimated to be 8.3 billion metric tons. In fact, the amount of plastic produced in one year is said to be roughly the same weight as the entire weight of humanity itself. Will we soon outweigh ourselves in plastic? Are we becoming plastic? What will our plastic future be?
