Remnant 2016

Remnant is a 4-meter giant sea turtle sculpture that weighs almost 200 kgs and took 2 years to make. The entire shell is crocheted from waste plastic bags collected from factories, and it is stuffed with plastic bags and water bottles collected from domestic and commercial waste. This work explores the world’s environmental issues and questions our current disposable culture and consumption habits. Also known as “Poly the turtle”, it was on a touring exhibition around Taiwan in 2016-2017 to raise awareness on the global plastic issue. Click here to view a short video of the making of Remnant.
