Recycling is to the saving the environment what cello tape is to a sinking boat. Only 10% of the plastic waste is collected for recycling in North America and too often the waste sent to recycling is contaminated or not processable. This means that a very small portion of the plastic will be reused and most of it will end up in landfills. In this ongoing series, I used disposed items collected from the garbage to create an imaginary world made entirely of plastic. The images of this artificial world cover the landscape images almost completely. This series is meant to spark reflections on what earth might look like if no action is taken.
