Slice I-V

Slice I-V, 2016/17. Sliced high-density polyethylene and low-density polyethylene cube casts, 70 x 20 cm.

These casts are inspired by the discovery of new rock classification called plastiglomerates, found on Hawaiian beaches in 2014 and formed of sand, rock and plastic.

In nature, sedimentary rock is formed over millions of years, the result of compressed organic matter. Slice considers the Anthropocene and the effects of fossil fuel extraction and plastic pollution on Earth’s geology and environment.

Each Slice is made from an individually hand moulded recycled plastic cast, sliced to resemble geological rock samples and data map visualisations. Framed using ArtGlass WW.
