The installation should also serve as a statement against plastic pollution by taking trash and turning it into a shelter. A lot of things which are most convient to us are made out of plastic. A too small percentage of this plastic waste end up in recycling bins.To make matters worse, plastic is persistent in the environment where it can remain up to 450 years. Surrounded by increased pollution every, the sculputure can also be seen as a reminder for creating awareness to recycle plastic waste.
