Remnant

Remnant was a 2-year project inspired by my time in Thailand. It is a 4-meter giant sea turtle sculpture that weighs almost 200 kgs. 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. “Poly” the turtle is now on a touring exhibition around Taiwan in 2016-2017: http://www.onebrownplanet.com/turtle-tour-details/
