In collaboration with Charlotte Art League, Inspired Plastics creates an art installation that blends plastics with the natural world! Hard-to-recycle plastics from packaging and colorful mesh fruit bags were collected locally, processed, and melted into durable thin panels. These were cut into strips, and re- melted onsite to twist into a spiral “spring” shape to fit around the trees. The plastic is meant to coexist with the tree, with the bark gradually embracing and growing around the spirals. This gradual incorporation symbolizes the triumph of the Earth over the encroachment of plastic pollution.
This project is currently incomplete. Contact us if interested in a sustainable art installation for your own business!
