‘Plastic Reproduction’ – How do we communicate on the plastic crisis with those that don’t want to hear about it?

Scott Cameron, 25

The ‘Plastic Reproduction’ series visually explores the circular plasticisation of our environment and the consequential legacy that will be passed on to the next generation. I explored the combination of the human form and plastics to shock, humour and communicate a problem of urgent importance in a language designed to engage even the most eco-ignorant demographic. The objects are inspired by research into modern semiology/symbolism (e.g. emoji) and the methodology of the classical still life artists, whilst the body shapes are suggestive of excessive consumption.
