Plastic Planet1-day workshop, August 2019
Here East, UCL, London
Taught by Alex Anderson, Jack Clay & Paula Strunden
Plastic is taking on a life of its own in the largest habitat on the planet- the deep sea. Plastic is forming its own islands, crabs are making their homes out of it, it has even entered the food chain through giant plankton. In this workshop we will use 360 spherical hand drawings, hand modelling, and Virtual Reality to imagine the plastic reality that is currently being formed leagues beneath the ocean’s surface. We will design and model structures using recycled single use plastics which we will then 3D Scan and transfer to our Deep Sea Virtual Reality. As well as using recycled plastics to create a 1:1 inflatable installation that will later be housed in the Deep Sea Virtual Reality.
