plastic bags, two fans, two timer clocks
Plastic Poetry is the poetic interpretation of an ecologically questionable material. The installation consists of a figure made of around hundred plastic bags sewn together and hanging from the ceiling, and two fans that are turned on and off by two timers. The air currents cause the interconnected plastic bags to interact, creating various noise and crackle conditions. The moving figure when the fans are running is just as important as the collapsing and quiet figure when the fans are turned off.
